Lorelei Schott

​​​I am often as interested in the process of making my art as I am in the idea. The two seem very connected. I have experimented through the years with several ideas and media. In the dirt paintings, I was drawn to the idea that everything comes from earth and eventually ends up in the earth. The dirt paintings are a symbolic as well as physical manifestation of this idea . 

The last three years I have also been fascinated, since moving to Denver, with the impact of city on nature. There seems to be an illogical beauty about it. I have taken many photographs of these interventions and abstracted them digitally as inspiration for painting. ​
