Past Resident

Ida Liedl

I practice direct contact with simple materials and domestic processes for sublime ends. My paintings are places of improvisation and polarity. They are also translucent habitations for light. Skin-like and vulnerable, they bleed. Working with colour as a sentient phenomenon facilitates painterly regenerations of spaces and things by leading them beyond their fixed boundaries. These contemplative and/or quirky attempts at animism are indebted to dead romantics and modernists. They furnish utopian longings for a thriving culture of human experience
