California native Suzanne D’Arcy was raised both in her parents’ suburban home and on her grandmother’s Gold Country farm. The two different environments, suburban and agricultural, piqued her interests in a variety of painting genres, from domestic and farm animals, agricultural lands, farms and ranches, small towns, young men with hot rods, environments insides buildings, to city skylines.
"I am interested in the inherent power and rhythm of average life. The subject matter can be very ordinary; it is the magic of the place, the color, atmosphere, play of light and dark, textural physicality of oil paint that can make paintings extraordinary. I work from life as often as I can. The interpretation of mood, atmosphere, and light plays a dominant place in making a painted canvas sing with life. I am very interested in the living relationships between man, animal and land."
