Suzanne Hodes

Seaweed In the Deep 2
9.6 x 14 monotype


“River Reflections” Series

I have long been drawn to water imagery with its constantly changing depths and surfaces, its mirroring of the sky and clouds. I’m affected by the birds flying and the insects buzzing. The meditative experience of drawing near the water goes into the work. Two locations have inspired many monotypes and paintings: the Charles River in Waltham near where I live and work, and Sebago Lake in Maine where I have been going during the summer since childhood.


Suzanne has been exhibiting in New England and New York for many decades. Her work covers a wide range of themes including expressive portraiture; urban images of Boston , New York , Prague and Jerusalem, social commentary and images of the natural world. She works in mixed media, oil , watercolor and monotype. She was one of the founder of Artists West Studios in Waltham, and Artists for Survival in 1982, a group dedicated to peace and social justice.

In the past 2 years her work has been added to the collections of the Portland ME Museum of Art, Emmanuel College, Wheaton College, Danforth Art and the Art Complex Museum.
