Statement

Tricia Strickfaden is a painter of Landscapes. She anchors us with a horizon line, and lifts us up to the skies with her ethereal clouds, then grounds us again, floating on her undulating waters. Sometimes they are depictions of foggy gloomy days, sunlit afternoons at the shore, or remembrances of spectacular sunsets. They are recollections of Strickfaden’s experiences and travels, and love of coastal living. Her works are a modern interpretation of the landscape and are not always a literal conception, but yet instead suggests a quality of earth, sea, and sky in atmospheric and often textural
oil on canvas medium.
