Former WVC student Lindsay Breidenthal's paintings are simultaneously beautiful and unsettling. Richly layered with images and patterns drawn from her experiences working in the woods, watching fire and animals, and observing residential sprawl, they reflect wild landscapes in transition and the new adaptations of human behavior required for survival.
“I begin a painting recklessly and quickly. Starting with a bright base layer gives spark to whatever follows. Keeping the first stages of a painting loose means moving without thinking, reacting to color and form – keeping it abstract. Images are teased out of abstract forms and sometimes stencils are used to build up texture. Layers of glaze in warm or cool hues are used to affect the mood and emotion of a picture. If all goes well, I paint a representation of something I feel but cannot easily put into words.” ~Lindsay Breidenthal on process
