LEAH KNECHT: STATEMENT

My work is a cross between representational painting and assemblage, or paintings that incorporate actual objects and ephemera, and often resin is utilized to preserve and add dimension. I appreciate the tactile quality said objects bring to the work, and the purpose of these objects compliment the finished surfaces.

History, transformation, and throwaway culture are some of the themes addressed, along with more sociopolitical works. There is interplay between depth and surface, and sometimes between abstract and representational. I invite the viewer to think about what is hidden beneath surface appearances, and what is illusion.

I am a member of the Pasadena Society of Artists, and Arroyo Arts Collective.
