Studio Visit: Amanda Lechner
Date: Saturday, October 29th, 2011
Location: Brooklyn, NY
In her most recent series of egg-tempera paintings and ink drawings, Amanda Lechner pulls from the history of optics and art to invent speculative narratives.
Audra Wolowiec is in residence this month at Wassiac Project in Wassaic, NY.
A note from Audra:
Wassaic has been a great experience – having a huge amount of space to work and think removed from the pace of the city. It seems everyone participates to create a sense of community – from the CSA farm onsite to open studios to the local general store. The first image is of the barn that houses more than 10 artist studios, a woodshop, silkscreen studio, food project space, auction ring (and more, the barn is an enormous converted 1875 livestock auction house) and the following images are from my studio – text pieces, concrete casts, and plaster stencils experimenting with objects that convey the physicality of sound through language and voice.
The Wassaic Project is an artist-run sustainable, multidisciplinary arts organization that focuses on community engagement and facilitates artists and participants to exhibit, discuss, and connect with art, each other, our unique site, and the surrounding area.
