Wendy Chidester’s artist’s statement (http://www.wendychidester.com/):

My work depicts a history of objects and machines that have been lost in the advancement of technology and time. My still life paintings of obsolete machines, worn and outdated luggage without wheels, used books and tried and true toys are filled with reverence, reverence for the human ingenuity they represent and for the inherent beauty of the objects themselves. I paint the objects as relics as if they were some kind of icon. I’m constantly keeping my eyes and ears open for subject matter that excites me to the point of wanting to bring the objects back to life.
