Trisha Strickfaden works with the artistry of color, line, and shape to portray a modern interpretation of her connection with nature. The work shows principles of design, composition, and texture, translucent and opaque color, and layering in a mix of materials. Her Abstract Botanical paintings are inspired from by the earthy, organic and botanic forms of the California landscape, applied abstractly on the canvas. These pieces are a mixed media of recycled house paint, ink, pastel and/or charcoal on canvas. Her newest mixed media Urban Organics and Black and White Collage works on paper show elements of the post-modern aesthetic, in minimalistic, organically shaped and geometric forms. Williams-Sonoma Home, Pottery Barn and Artfully Walls currently sell select reproductions of her work online. Her original work is available through Ian Saude.
Strickfaden is constantly perfecting her art, always pushing, changing, and trying new approaches to her work. She looks for inspiration in the beauty and color of everyday life. She feels that without this constant change, her work would be lifeless.
