Suhame’s work is a battle and matrimony of emotions. In Suhame’s Dream Station, the artist represents her dreams like a silent movie, where odd actions that take place like puzzles. However, if the observer analyzes her paintings with passion, a solution would be found.
In order to capture all the incoherencies of her dreams, Suhame used different materials: charcoal as first layer to get a high contrast and more values, and then oil pastels, which give her the chance to play with texture, roughness, and softness; bringing out the child she has inside with no intention of balance, composition or perfect shapes. Suhame’s Dream Station is a different kind of exhibition; it is a passionate proposal, a smooth dance of color intensities, and a beautiful dance with oil pastels.
