KATIE RЀ SCHEIDT
Katie Ré Scheidt is a contemporary artist whose genres span abstract and nudes to portrait work and landscapes. Scheidt primarily works in acrylics, gouaches, oils and charcoal. A sumptuous palette and an intense approach to painting contribute to the artist’s style. Uplifting and lyrical, her work is often left in a state of dynamic incompletion, allowing room for the viewer to project his/her/their experience onto the canvas with personal connection.
As witnessed in Springtime and other paintings here at the Lodge, the bucolic setting where she lives in Litchfield County, Connecticut with her husband and two children, serves as a source of constant inspiration. Her work can be found in private collections worldwide and currently hangs at Auberge Resorts and Relais & Chateaux hotels in New England, including The Mayflower Grace Hotel & Spa in Washington, CT and Winvian Farms in Warren, CT.
"Much like improv, my canvases are unscripted and often left in a state of dynamic incompletion. Trusting my inner voice, and putting my ego away, I can flood color, make marks, react honestly and support choices…having no specified goal. It’s about letting ideas flow with the suspension of judgement.”
