Zsuzsanna Pataki is a colourist with an eye for beauty in unexpected places. Her artworks capture history and atmosphere in an impressionistic style, with bold colours. She is an avid student of urban life, often painting cityscapes en plein air (on site), noting the peaceful coexistence of ancient architecture and contemporary designs.
London, Venice, Barcelona are among her favourite subjects, but she also studied the contrasting forces of Man and Nature, as they simultaneously destroy and rely on one another, in an eternal circle. The industrial port of Calais and fishing boats of Whitstable are just as much the part of this tale, as the romantic tourist towns along the coast of Brittany, France.
Her Nature-themed paintings of landscapes, forests and florals are a delightful dance of colours and shapes. Giclee prints available, please ask.

Alternating layers of liquid, runny acrylics and thick impasto worked with palette knife Zsuzsanna invites the viewer to complete the story of the artwork by imagination. Inspired by the great Impressionist masters’ understanding of colour theory, the design principles of Expressionism, and sense of drama of Baroque masterpieces, she fills her paintings with a unique, playful mixture of traditional and modern elements. The goal is to arrest the viewer, then entertain, and hopefully make her think…

‘Our knowledge of the world is fractured, our understanding is coloured by interpretation. Painting it with the knife allows me to highlight the beauty and remind myself and the viewer of how temporal, fragile and partial the picture is. I expect the viewer to put together the pieces. I paint a puzzle: we never have the whole picture… and always add our own bit to the story.’
Her recent works include Venice canalscapes and Waterlily pond abstracts, with ambient light reflected by gold and silver leaves, carefully placed to harmonise with the whole of the painting. Dependent on light conditions and the angle of viewing, the artwork becomes an interactive experience, the only constant being change, all at the mercy of the light received from above.
