Soup to Nuts with Aldwyth | November 30, 2011

Wednesday, November 30, 2011
The Halsey Institute, 161 Calhoun Street

Now in her seventies, Aldwyth lives and works in an octagonal house at the edge of a salt marsh on one of South Carolina’s sea islands. For several decades, she has been producing important work in relative seclusion from the larger art world. Her assemblages are responses to the physical landscapes in which she has positioned herself—be it a hurricane-strewn island or a craggy meadow in the Colorado Rockies. The artist utilizes the history of art and ideas as the catalyst for complex, often epic-scaled collages that resemble medieval manuscript pages writ large.

Despite her avoidance of crowds and cities, she devours information and images available to her from a variety of sources—art magazines, libraries, bookstores, the Internet. She is a voracious reader and inveterate collector of detritus. All of the objects and images that enter her purview become fair game, served up as the raw material from which her works are made.
