In this body of work, painted mostly in 2017, I am working with integrating an abstract, linear background with the figure. I’m also adding linear elements that interrupt the figure, often overlapping as a way of joining the figurative image to the pictorial composition as a whole. This adds to the sense of movement, one moment cascading into the next. In this way I am hoping to capture an expanse of time as the figure moves through space.
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.
