Susanne Eybl brings a world that is imaginative, colorful, humorous, psychedelic, and yet sometimes somber and intense. Much as life itself, her drawings juxtapose the good and the bad, the grotesque and the harmonious, the naive and the shrewd, the vivid and the decaying, the earnest and the jesting, the magical and the mundane. This creates a complex display of elements in which hope lives side by side despair, life alongside death, mature next to infantile, and the strong is entwined with the fragile. In seeing all this, the observer is always given a choice: to succumb to the dark elements that lurk within and around us, or to ride on whatever positive there is, ascend, and become uplifted. The drawings do not disclose which way prevails, but neither does life itself.
