In this body of work, painted in 2018, I am further exploring breaking up space and splintering the figure, sometimes starting with the abstract background, and finding a figure within it. You can see this in “Private Lives” and “Morning Coffee.” During this time, I was transitioning and reassessing in my own life, mining my emotions, looking for guidance within the shifting marks and colors of paint.
Sandra Speidel is an actively exhibiting artist, focusing on the figure and abstractions. Though her paintings are anchored in classic painting and drawing, they suggest a broader story through the addition of abstract marks and symbols.
