Healing exhibition showcases Suzy Kederian's inspirational journey through nature and art


Suzy Kederian, a local Kogarah artist, invites art enthusiasts to embark on a journey of healing and discovery through her latest exhibition.
Healing at the Dragon’s Lair Gallery within Hurstville Museum & Gallery from 16 March, delves into Suzy's profound connection with the landscapes surrounding Botany Bay, and the Georges River area and the therapeutic power of art.
Following the loss of her mother, Suzy found solace and rejuvenation in the serene beauty of these natural environments, which she captures through her artwork.
"Nature nurtures and heals my heart; art soothes and saves my soul. They are my constant companions—without them I cannot breathe," shares Suzy Kederian.
Suzy's artistic process is dynamic and intuitive, ranging from representational to abstract forms. With a quick sketch as her guide, she dives headfirst into her paintings, utilising impasto techniques to create rich textures and vibrant colours.
Her pre-planning involves vibrant background washes and meticulous colour mixing, resulting in captivating and emotionally resonant artworks.
Inspired by a diverse array of artists—from the impressionists to contemporary masters—Suzy's work reflects a fusion of styles and influences, which is evident in her atmospheric landscapes and expressive compositions.
Georges River Council Mayor Sam Elmir expressed his excitement about the exhibition.

"We're thrilled to showcase Suzy Kederian's Healing exhibition. It's a testament to the transformative power of creativity and we eagerly anticipate the inspiration and joy it will bring to our community,” said the Mayor.
The exhibition opens on Sunday 17 March at 2.30pm. Admission is free, and all are welcome to attend.
