Artist Statement-Lydia Schlicht

Simple explorations in sociology, religion, and personal experiences have proven the most influential forces in my shaping and creating of art. These explorations have pushed me to observe, investigate, and expose psychological and spiritual ideologies of the post-modern American culture I live in, aiming to uncover and facilitate discussion of the absolute truths that relativism is founded on. Using mixed media including photography, found objects, newspaper clippings, textiles and oil paint, my work usually portrays layers of visually identifiable ideas amidst colorful abstractions.
