Illuminating Magic | Suzanne Donazetti
Dawn and dusk. Both are stunning gifts of nature, given freely every day. They capture the imagination and fuel the spirit. Everybody has a memory of one or the other, or both; of a time when the sky was filled with pastel hues and pink washed over the land. The feeling is so strong it’s almost as if the memory exists in the shared unconsciousness of mankind itself. And, just as with memories, they cause all to pause and reflect.
Just as the changing skies cause people to slow down and appreciate their surroundings, or bring a sense of nostalgia, the sunrise and the sunset also fuel artists. Each one is unique, and those who are awed by them know that their beauty must be captured in the moment before the memory is displaced by the next.
It is these iconic impressions of a pastel sky that have fueled Suzanne Donazetti’s latest pieces. Each one takes on the characteristics of the changing sky, and captures in her own unique way the shared understanding of how beautiful these natural gifts are.
