About Bastienne Schmidt
Mixed media artist Bastienne Schmidt uses photography, painting, and mixed-media work to investigate how objects and images can carry the memory of time. As the daughter of an archeologist and an ardent traveler, the artist’s work was initially inspired by the varied ancient and modern cultures she encountered. Her most recent series has incorporated pieces of domestic life, with espresso grains, lint, and soap representing material traces of the everyday.
