Feng Biddle is a Chicago artist working in oil and pastel. She loves the richness of oil paints, and the immediacy of drawing and painting with pastels. These media are like friends with different personalities. She enjoys spending time with each, knowing their differences draws interactions with them in somewhat different directions. In a way, her paintings are the conversations she have with these friends.
Her approach to art is to paint from heart, as she explores the nature of what she sees with her eyes and her imagination. Using a representational starting point, either real or invented, she examines the relationships of lines, shapes and colors. Her works are largely abstract, evolving as an interaction between vision and the process of arranging and applying color to paper or canvas. While literal images may contribute somewhat to her images, she is mainly interested in presenting simplified flat shapes, and creating color relationships. She tries to rely on line and shape as content, while using color to create the emotional component in paintings.
