EXPRESSIVE, FEMININE, EMPOWERING
Falls Church, VA
Susanne Tabet is a German abstract figurative painter who lives and works in Northern Virginia. She found painting in her early twenties when a visit to the Tate Modern in London introduced her to the works of Italian painter Amedeo Modigliani and ignited a desire to replicate his work. She continued to study and explore other great masters in modern art and, over the years, developed and evolved her skills and distinct style. Her expressionist figures aim to be a translation of emotion and a celebration of femininity in all its forms. As a female painter who creates abstract female figures, Susanne’s art aims to capture women's raw, emotional essence. Her art is about self-expression and exploring; painting is like tracing her life experiences and sentiments. She uses bold strokes and vibrant colors for the viewer's immediate, visceral response. Through her work, Susanne explores the complexities of the female form, its beauty and power, vulnerabilities, and imperfections. Her art is a celebration of femininity in all its forms without the objectification and sexualization that often accompanies depictions of the female body. Ultimately, her goal as an artist is to create work that speaks to the heart and soul and inspires a sense of empowerment. Susanne’s work has an international fan base with private collectors in Thailand, England, Germany, and Cyprus.
