ALDWYTH

What’s Love Got To Do, Got To Do With It? 2006-2009 Collage on Okaware paper, 113×147 in

 

Hilton Head resident Aldwyth (b. 1935, Pomona, Calif.) was represented in the South Carolina TRIENNIAL 2001 and 1995 at the South Carolina State Museum in Columbia as well as in the 2011 exhibition TRIENNIAL Revisited at 701 Center for Contemporary Art. Her 2009 retrospective, Aldwyth: work v./work n.: Collage and Assemblage 1991 – 2009, was organized by the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art in Charleston and also traveled to the Ackland Art Museum in Chapel Hill, N.C., and the Telfair Museum’s Jepson Center in Savannah, Ga. Here work is represented in the South Carolina State Art Collection, managed by the South Carolina Arts Commission. Since the mid-1980s, Aldwyth has kept up an active exhibition schedule and has been awarded many grants and residencies, including residencies at Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Colorado and Kohler Arts and Industry in Kohler, Wis.

Statement of support:

Aldwyth’s artworks, consisting primarily of collage and assemblage, are richly layered meditations on the nature of human nature. Made up of re-combinations of the detritus of our past, at once strange and familiar, these intricate works probe our collective memories and offer a window through which to once again experience a sense of wonder. Infused with hard-earned wisdom, art historical references and a subtle humor, Aldwyth’s intimate art transcends nostalgia and takes the viewer into a realm of pure imagination.
