Susanne Herbold, born in 1970 in Germany, has cultivated a thriving studio-gallery in the heart of Cologne. This vibrant space not only showcases her exclusive works but also serves as a creative sanctuary where new artistic expressions come to life.
Herbold´s passion for painting ignited during her childhood, but it initially took a backseat to her business career. She pursued a Bachelor of Tourism (CCI) with honors and immersed herself in the fields of travel, tourism, and later, the automotive sector. Concurrently, she ensured her art gained visibility, allowing her creations to reach an ever-expanding audience, resulting in a surging demand for. Today, Herbold has wholeheartedly embraced her calling as a full-time artist.
Herbold´s art has transcended borders, gracing numerous international exhibitions in Italy, Spain, Germany, and the USA, including the illustrations Red Dot Miami during Art Basel Week. Her captivation works have found a cherished place in private collections across many countries.
“I perceive life as a splendid opportunity for perpetual development, contingent upon a healthy body, mind, and a well-balanced existence.” Herbold reflects. As the pace of our global society escalates relentlessly, external pressures mount. Western society, in particular, appears trapped in a perpetual hamster wheel, constantly chasing speed. In this frenzy, individuals risk losing touch with their values, their true selves, and their wellspring of inner inspiration, ultimately jeopardizing their health and overall joy of life.
Herbold´s paintings extend an invitation to pause and reflect. Notably, her abstract works offer viewers ample room for personal interpretations, encouraging introspection on the journey of life itself. Her artistic process has evolved over time, transitioning from a predominantly rational approach to a more intuitive one. While her earlier works sought to convey specific thoughts, ideas, and messages, today, Herbold finds depth and quality in the very act of creation. This evolution has been fueled by her personal and artistic growth. Reveling in the process of creation, she immerses herself in the flow, forging a harmonious connection between canvas and self.
Susanne Herbold´s artistic odyssey exemplifies the transformative power of self-discovery and the profound impact of art in fostering introspection. Through her thought-provoking works, she implores individuals to seek stillness amidst lift´s chaos. Herbold´s paintings serve as poignant reminders to reconnect with our inner selves, rekindle our passions, and find solace and joy in the enchanting realm of artistic expression.
