The way I am able to get into my work and feel motivated to try painting again and again is by letting things go and moving into the larger notion of complete and total freedom.
Is there anything Leidy Churchman can’t paint?
When painting happens for me, it’s more like collecting caterpillars on a summer night, being both delighted and grossed out, or it’s driven by a desire to take care of something that is completely unknown.
What Churchman paints is a fascinating riddle. Their choice of subject is almost the subject itself.
Churchman uses the acts of seeing and making as a way to peel back and experience the many layers of being in this world.
