INGRID STRECKER

Collective Exhibition
October 10 – October 30, 2019
Reception: Thursday, October 10, 2019 6-8 PM

Ingrid Strecker is a painter of flouresences. Working with the quick drying, almost sculptural medium of acrylic paint, she also incorporates aleatory drifts of actual sand into her pieces. What comes out of her patiently layered approach to picture-making is often cosmic in scope. Titles like Cosmos II (2018), Moonlight (2015), and Magical Places IV (2018) abound in Strecker’s oeuvre.
She collected sand on her way to the Camino de Santiago de Compostela and used color pigments to create the luminosity and strong contrasts shown in this artwork. What all of her paintings have in common is a tendency to paint the external world as though it were an internal, impressionist phenomenon. This lends her paintings a sort of dreamlike ambiguity; they feel like analogies for real things, while depicting natural phenomena (oceans, landscapes, caves) is a manner that is quite literal and expressive.

Strecker’s use of color is probably what will leap to the eye of casual viewer.s There’s generally a dominant color tone that permeates an individual painting; orange, blue, brown. These dominant colors are undiluted; they rarely abscond from the earthen hues and contexts we associate with them. But the very naturalness of Strecker’s palette allows her to paint the interiority of the imagination.
