Sussi Trampedach was born in an artistic world where both her parents lived in work in art and culture.
When did you start painting? "I have not painted myself before I went to a seminar in 2006, by chance, a picture was painted. It was at that time my artistic year opened. In the first few years I painted the most to disconnect from the world around me. My works suddenly became more and more aware and I discovered that I was thrilled to be in a universe where I could be allowed to give something of myself through art. Through my collaboration with Galleri Nijenkamp, there has been extremely great interest in my works "
What characterizes your art? "The characteristic of my art is; That my characters are often human beings. They are dressed in beautiful clothes that help them shield themselves from the outside world. The beautiful exterior saves the less beautiful interior. An inner that contains feelings, thoughts and dilemmas that our society has made shameful and forbidden feelings. All people possess both bright and dark sides. Most people suppress the dark feelings. My goal is to adhere to the feelings and relate to them and learn to live with them. "Explains Sussi Trampedach
Where does your inspiration come from? "I'm very busy with contrasts. Fashion magazines and the individual people at the center are some of my sources of inspiration. The trend "see me-hear me" I have also worked with. Fashion, I use, as previously stated, to emphasize that we use the beautiful to cover the ugly that is contained below. In the animal kingdom, the male is most often fitted with some amazing suit that is used when he is going to get used to the female. That ability we humans are not fortunate to possess, we have to dress it ourselves. And so we do. On the whole, beauty is a very big inspiration for me. The crowding feathers are backdrops in many of my pictures. "
What does your art say? "I want to tell a story about us people. I experience people as refined animals but basically with the same drives. However, the drifter has become more and more refined for many generations. I feel great tenderness for the figures I paint. It's not just self portraiture but a kind of portrait of all of us. of the feelings and distresses that life can imply. Some may find my photos provocative. I'm of the opinion that it may be because many people find it difficult to recognize their own demons and do not really want to be reminded of it. At times, I sometimes find it hard to relate to my own demons, but it actually helps to paint them. They become an illustrated feeling that takes place. "Sussi concludes considerably
