Embroidery or Painting ?
A reflection by Susanne Lewest

Dot by Dot
The decorative elements that I have loved in creating hats as a milliner have certainly had an influence on my style in painting.
The dots enable me more than anything else to combine texture with color. At the same time,
I can loose myself in the meditative quality of applying dots onto a color landscape.
Painting gave me the freedom to folllow the stitches of my own life‘s pattern. It allows me to breathe new life into moments from the past.
In painting, I can renew their color and, dot by dot,
I follow their movement in space.
