Susan Lhamo


Susan Lhamo has been involved in art and creativity for over 50 years, her main inspiration being the landscape.

Abstraction is the style that I pursue, and is my principle genre. Employing intuition and spontaneous paint application I create images that draw on the inner landscapes of the psyche.

The painting creates it’s own direction and process. I use symbols, mainly of my own invention, that reference ancient European decoration and style.

To me, the landscape can be viewed as a metaphor for our lives’ journey and meaning and hence I invite the viewer to contemplate this according to their own disposition, experience and memories.

Tmac acknowledge the traditional custodians of the lands we operate on, the Wanggerriburras people and pay my respects to elders past, present and emerging.
