About

In a court of law, relying solely on memory is highly unreliable. Lydia Viscardi was drawn to these discarded trial documentation photographs of wrecked cars with the same fascination and queasiness an actual accident elicits. She uses the car crashes to embody catastrophe or any painful past or present adversity imbedded in the psyche. By obscuring but never fully obliterating the image with mixed media, carved lines and collage, the layered altered images represent how we tackle unbearable memories to make them tolerable and find resolution. Lydia Viscardi is a representational mixed media artist whose exhibition venues include ODETTA, the Drawing Center, Walter Wickiser Gallery, Arcilesci Homberg Fine Arts, Sideshow Gallery, Active Space, Brooklyn Fireproof, Concepto Hudson and The Heckscher Museum of Art in New York; Center for Visual Arts and Victory Hall Drawing Rooms in New Jersey; Housatonic Museum of Art, The Barnum Museum, Ely Center for Contemporary Art, Hans Weiss Newspace Gallery of Manchester Community College, and Schelfhaudt Gallery of the University of Bridgeport in Connecticut. Her mixed media work is represented by ODETTA Gallery online and she is a Gallery Artist at Concepto Hudson, Hudson NY.
