"Moths" series of three are being painted in a manner of articulation through metaphor. The portraits in the series depict three ladies, with each trying to remember something forgotten long time ago. And only in their dreams it comes as a lightest touch of a moth. The series #2 shows a lady holding a bouquet of thistles. She tries to smile but sharp spikes remind her about all the danger she came from.

Getting to Know Suzanna

Suzanna Orlova exclusively uses shades of red and black in her paintings. This is largely because she was born color blind. Her vision deficiency did not stop her from being interested in painting at a young age, and honing her skills as a self-taught artist. Suzanna’s work is haunting, eerie, and emotional. The painterly realism she employs in capturing her subjects is technically remarkable for the water-based media she uses. Bordering on surrealism, each painting leaves the viewer feeling deeply moved. Suzanna lives and works on Vancouver Island, Canada.
