While I am creating art, I get so involved, that it is the only time I feel truly alive. Since I am part of the human family, and getting to know myself a little bit better, then also I have a chance to understand the collective better. That led me to be also interested in social conditions. My inspiration is to observe the wonders of existence: What is real and what is illusion? Just as in nature there is constant change so there is change in society, and in an individual’s life. Although I derive inspiration from various sources- e.g.., music, nature, the human condition. I try to find the balance between mind and spirit. My goal is to involve viewer in a creative game where both the mind and the heart are stimulated.
“Because she possesses the secret code of the mystical colors, she finds an artistic expression to explore humanity's spiritual and intellectual needs. With this sensitivity she can create a dramatic or lyric mood, and she always fights against hypocrisy and false cleverness. This courageous colorist paints every view of life, opinion, belief, experience, and imagination with great fervor, focusing on the transcendental and the metaphysical. Susan Dobay's colorful confessions overcome the misunderstanding of so many different ideological concepts. Trust, confidence, idealism guide her brush, and probably this is the reason that she has been inspired to paint Don Quixote so many times.”
