Technique and Work
For her hyper-realistic paintings, Susanne Wehmer uses the traditional technique of oil paint with a medium of turpentine and linseed oil, but on modern and industrial surfaces such as plexiglas or aluminum. The smooth surface of these supports gives a smooth and glossy texture to her paintings, just as coated paper for magazines. Pictorical references as canvas texture and brush strokes are totally eliminated to reach an almost photographic result.
All works are painted with brushes on plexiglas or aluminium.
