Sydney Licht composes contemporary still life paintings, borrowing from the everyday. Licht places her focus on containers such as shopping bags and candy boxes, creating architectural piles of color, pattern and form. “Whether wildly florescent or quietly monochromatic, the color functions as a reflection of the world around me. Decorative patterns depicted on the boxes and tablecloths add to the visual mix,” says Licht. The results are rich, somewhat abstract towers of the mundane. via
