Meg Lagodzki

My work always starts with direct observation. I spend a lot of time in the landscape, especially in the limestone quarries so common to this part of Indiana. I paint (plein air,) sketch and photograph a location, and use those resource materials as starting points for my studio practice.  My current body of work is an exploration of the strange altered landscapes created by human intervention, i.e., quarrying. That said, some days I just paint whatever is on hand, like my moving boxes. I’m currently working on a series of collages that allow me to explore some ideas in a more playful, abstracted manner.
