Using traditional oil painting and glazing techniques, Angie Schwickerath creates moody impressions of land, sea and sky for this show. They are based on the artist’s own photos, sketches, videos and sense memories of her experience in each place and time. These recent paintings are a result of her need to get back to being herself, by herself, and the empowering freedom of car travel, several road trips later.
Midwestern, girl-next-door /rebel-poet, painter Angie Schwickerath was born in 1962, and as a girl, lived in a small town in Iowa, where she felt her feet firmly on the ground with her head in the clouds. Summertime, she saw a lot of America through the car window, traveling with her parents and siblings. Her family came to Colorado to live when she was a thirteen. She studied painting and drawing at Colorado College in the early 90’s. She has worked as a baker and pastry chef, raised two sons, was married and divorced. All the while, she has been drawing, painting, learning, practicing, picking up new skills from other artists, and traveling. She has a dog and a vintage Airstream trailer. Her artwork has been exhibited in Brooklyn, Denver, Manitou Springs and Colorado Springs, where she has lived for the past 35 years. Her paintings can be found in private collections across the country.
