SUSAN'S STYLE & INSPIRATION
Inspired by artists such as Friedensreich Hundertwasser, a famous and highly regarded Austrian artists of the twentieth century, incorporating nature and vibrant colors, Susan’s art is abstract, organic, saturated with color, and draws the viewer in. Like the artists who influence her, such as Mexican Vladimar Cora whose work has been called neo-figurative, minimalist and coarse, Susan Fielder’s art is neo-primitive, outsider art (a label created by French artist Jean Dubuffet to describe art created outside the boundaries of official culture).
Other influencers are Picasso, Calder, and Miro. Embracing outsider art, Susan's paintings have a naïve quality some have deemed visionary, schizophrenic, primitive, psychotic, obsessive, compulsive, untutored, vernacular, self-taught, brut, rough, raw, call them what you will. Stare at the one you like best for a few minutes and you start to see something staring back at you.
"INTUITIVE PASSION LAUNCHES AN INNER DISCOVERY". -IPLAID
After 15 months, and an incredible fight for his life having had Pancreatic Cancer, I lost my husband to Pancreatic Cancer. Now, I'm hoping to make a difference for all of the wonderful people who are currently fighting or have lost their battle with pancreatic cancer. This journey of creating art brought me through the devastating grieving and loss of my husband who was a wonderful man and deserved to enjoy his retirement, friends and family. Out of my pain and desire to help others came a program I call iPlaid which stands for Intuitive Passion Launches an Inner Discovery. Hence, my creations are what have happened since his death and during the last almost seven years now.
After I created iPlaid on the Ipad I just had to name it in memoriam to Steve Jobs, Peaceful Passion for my husband, Notes to Music for Luciano Pavarotti and several others. I then decided to create more for those who had also lost their lives to this disease. The first 22 images in my iPlaid gallery you will see are representative of those lost lives. Several I knew personally. Being an avid Apple fan, the iPlaid image just came to me out of the blue after dabbling on the ipad, so naming it for Steve Jobs was because I created a plaid on the iPad, hence calling it iPlaid...
What does it mean? The red color signals the sense of energy, the blue line for blue sky at the end of the tunnel, the yellow dots are the watch-full eyes looking for a cure and the surrounding bright green-yellow is the call to action in neon lights... I am asking for your help in this most unusual way to make a difference. Researchers must be funded to find a cure for Pancreatic Cancer.
10% of all of proceeds for my art will go to researchers close to a cure. So far I have raised over 160K. I can't thank you enough for all for your support!
