ARTmonday: Sydney Licht

Artist Sydney Lichtrepresented by Kathryn Markel Fine Arts in New York City and Bridgehampton, paints still life  subjects as geometric, flat forms that appear abstract, and somewhat architectural. She portrays not just the items, but the packaging, shopping bags, boxes, and inevitable detritus in which they are sold and purchased. She says, “I am interested in updating the conventions of still life by picturing items that reflect the way we currently live.” The colors are soft and alluring; she works with restricted palettes, and has at times limited herself to only four or five colors per work, and avoids using black completely. Licht attended Smith College, earned her MFA at the Art Institute of Chicago, and currently lives in New York City.
