SYNC Gallery presents Lydia Riegle
Lydia Riegle: Artist Statement
Curious by nature, Lydia Riegle is fascinated with outcomes from using different materials, tools and processes. Her work is very much asking the question, exploring the idea and then discovering the wonder that often results.Recently, she added printmaking as a way to inform her painting. Happily, Riegle found that one informs the other bringing to life new ideas, new directions, and new questions. Her work is often complex creating a first impression which leads to further examination. Often, questions are layered resulting in ongoing decisions until the surface is covered. Other times, a single observation or question leads to strong minimal mark-making. Throughout it all, she is intimate with the discovery process and the beauty of the outcome.Riegle finds inspiration in living a life fully engaged- family, travel, new experiences, beauty are but a few that contribute to a creative life, fully present.
