Susanne Bondrop Follows Her Intuition


Submitted by editor on December 14, 2014 – 2:50 pm


Her vibrant works exude sunshine, air and space, giving each a physical immediacy that plays off beautifully against the abstract elements of the artist’s approach. Whether she is painting in acrylics on canvas or working in pastels on paper, Bondrop employs her sharp eye for line, composition and color to create images that combine her unique sense of perspective and form with a charming spontaneity.

“Intuition leads my brushes,” she says, and that can clearly be seen in her paintings. Perhaps that instinct and freedom are most evident in her approach to texture. Constructing her images from layers of brushstrokes or boldly drawn swathes of pastels, she gives the surface of each image a powerful energy. That force is magnified by her expressive color palette, in which the balance of bright and muted tones creates a dynamic rhythm and vivid sense of space. The resulting images conjure up a world that feels utterly believable and real, while remaining part of the artist’s inner, personal vision.

About Susanne Bondrop


In Susanne Bondrop’s paintings, landscapes — from the Mediterranean to the Caribbean — are brought to life. Her vibrant works exude sunshine, air and space, giving each a physical immediacy that plays off beautifully against the abstract elements of the artist’s approach. Whether she is painting in acrylics on canvas or working in pastels on paper, Bondrop employs her sharp eye for line, composition and color to create images that combine her unique sense of perspective and form with a charming spontaneity.

Susanne Bondrop

My predominant sources of inspiration are the landscapes of Denmark, where I live, or those I see on painting trips to other countries such as the Azores, Italy, the Virgin Islands, or Cuba. The different impressions I receive on site become mixed together in my art in a powerful, colorful way, whether I paint on location or later on, referring to the many photographs I take.

When I am painting I like to immerse myself in a trance-like state, so that my intuition can guide my brushstrokes, infusing each one with purpose and meaning.

I love the challenge of painting expressive, evocative scenes, and the vibrant nature of acrylic paints and pastels which bring the essence of life to what started off as a simple white canvas.
