“My work is consistently inconsistent.I work in series that are in constant search for reinvigorating a sense of discovery and empowerment.In my current work I explore the contrast of existing simultaneously in a sustained chaos and order. Starting with erratic chance textures and ending diligently with scrupulous painting I seek to bring harmony and elevate the spirit.” Lidia Shaddow.
