Suzanne Bohrer Ashley

My work evokes the rhythms and harmonies of music, like the natural world around us. Nature inspires me to reflect upon my deep love of music and transcend the two-dimensional surface, using color to evoke mood and emotion. Starting with a simple composition and limited palette, I build multiple layers that produce contrast and ambiguity as life does. Listen to the melody and feel the composition. The images are provoked by the reactions a specific location has generated within me rather than by a representation of the actual scene itself.
