Susanna Stefanachi Macomb is an artist who works in a full range
of scale and content. Expressionistic in style and spiritual in
nature, her painting is noted for its fertile lyricism, sumptuous
color and detail, and mythological portent. An ordained interfaith
minister, Stefanachi also serves as a spiritual counselor and celebrant.
Her work has been exhibited in galleries, universities, chapels
and cultural centers internationally, and is available for exhibition,
sale, commission, lease and publication. Prices are available by
request. Studio visits by appointment only.
The process is devotional
I begin a painting
and a communion occurs
It is my vision,
to reach the essence of what is at hand
I tap into a universal life force which expresses itself
Each painting contains two to five renditions
Sometimes one must dissolve to begin again
Until the outcome is realized
It would not be an exaggeration to say that this process is exhilarating
One feels so very much alive
Susanna Stefanachi Macomb
It was Bill Moyers who asked Joseph Campbell,
"Who interprets divinity
inherent in nature for us today? Who are our shamans? Who interprets
unseen things for us?
Joseph Campbell answered, "It is the function of the artist
to do this."
"The paintings have the presence of icons, begging to be touched"
Tom Wachunas, Downtown
"Like grand opera, Susanna Stefanachis painting fills
surrounding space with fertile lyricism."
