Interview: Sussanne Hoiberg
Luca Curci
 talks with Sussanne Hoiberg during LONDON CONTEMPORARY ART FAIR 2022, at THE LINE Contemporary Art Space, and during CONSCIOUSNESS, second appointment of ANIMA MUNDI, at Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello.

Sacred geometry, butterflies and symbolism relating to Norse mythology are her passion and inspiration. Art is the language that has given her the courage to express herself with confidence. Sussanne’s favourite mediums are acrylic ink, watercolour and mixed media. She expresses herself intuitively by sensing vibration, thoughts and feelings. These spiritual messages, mystical shapes and symbols can be seen in many of her artworks. Sussanne began her career as a graphic designer & illustrator and then worked in the film industry creating artistic scenery on the sets. Her true passion of painting inspired her to exhibit in several juried art competitions in Vancouver & the Fraser Valley, BC Canada winning praise and awards from 2013-2019. Sussanne is the founder of Vendel Festival Art shows which promotes local artists in her area since 2014. Sussanne is excited to be living & working at the ARC, an artist resource centre residence, in Vancouver since February 2020. She enjoys promoting and sharing with other like-minded artists. You can find Sussanne’s artwork on display during open studio events at the Arc on Powell street. Her artworks are collected internationally.

Luca Curci – What is art for you?
Sussanne Hoiberg Art is a way for me to communicate my emotions and answers my questions about the universe and beyond. Art is my passion and my life. I feel as though it flows through me onto the paper or canvas.

LC – How did you get to your current artistic practice?
SH –
Through trials and tribulations. Listening to my inner artist and going with the flow. A few years ago I decided I want to live and work with other artists. Not sure if it would be in Canada or abroad. I am of Danish descent and born in Sweden, and decided to explore my ancestral roots, do research, visit galleries, independent co-op art studios for 3 months. When I arrived home in Vancouver in 2019 after my travels, I knew I wanted to live and work in Vancouver. I found the ARC, where I could live and work as an artist. There was a waiting list to get in, but after a few months, I moved in to my dream come true on February 1st, 2020. I now live and breath as an artist, creating something new every day.

LC – What is the most challenging part about creating your artworks?
SH –
Scheduling a block of time where I can concentrate 100% on the current artwork with no interruptions. I live and work in my art studio with many distractions. The daily household chores, art business, accounting, paperwork, marketing and social media etc. take away valuable time. It prevents me from doing what I love the most, which is to be creative and just paint.

LC – Did your style change over the years? In which way?
SH –
I believe my style has changed in leaps and bounds as I overcame challenges in my life. It has steadily improved and expanded as I had a deeper understanding about myself and how I fit in the world. I finally learned how to not think when I create. Just let it flow through me. That’s the magical part.

LC – How do you choose your subjects? Is it a reasoned or an instinctive process?
SH –
I’m an intuitive and expressive artist. Meditation and contemplation are the beginning of each art piece. I “see it” before I see it. I trust my intuitive expressive instincts and the art ows through me onto the paper or canvas.

LC – In which way the artwork presented in our exhibition is connected with exhibitions theme?
SH –
The symbolism, shapes and colours in my artwork is about communication. The art I create is an expression of the soul between space, time and beyond. I believe when a person looks at my artwork it may spark their desires or hidden needs beyond their wildest imaginations.

LC – What do you think about ITSLIQUID platform?
SH –
It’s a great opportunity for artists who want to promote their art in the international market. It’s a wonderful learning experience.
