Artist’s Statement

“These are the day to day things I see, and live with.  They are exceptional, because there is something about what I see to which I go back to again and again.  They are mundane, as they can be easily passed over during a day or a lifetime as the all too familiar.  

​

My work involves a balance of time that is incredibly planned, and very much spontaneous.  For example, I only have a certain time of year if I want to paint tree branches before the leaves develop.  When I want to paint a morning shadow instead of an evening one, I need to study the shadows, and plan accordingly.  I have to be familiar with what each season brings, as textures, daylight, and time passes.  This is a practice I enjoy, and which keeps me calm.  It is something personal, and very simple. “

Biography

Alyssa Schmidt works on site, painting and drawing what the artist sees as her place in the world: a perspective of Schmidt’s careful, mindful daily practice of noticing and observing.  Through the changes the artist sees in the context of a day to a year, from seed growth to weather, to her own aging; Schmidt finds newness in what may otherwise be overlooked as the mundane.  

​

Schmidt’s working practice is fluid and easily transportable allowing the artist, along with her patient observation of time, to bring the balance of spontaneity to carefully planned compositions.
