Veiled Abstractions: L.A. Bachman

October 20, 2017 Through January 14, 2018

LABachman_Tap_webNashville artist L.A. Bachman’s abstract art explores family, belief, responsibility, failure, and desire, and is an arena for self-reflection. Hints of human form are veiled by an abstract layer like lace across the body, suggesting tangible objects amidst unrecognizable ones. 

Bachman, who works on approximately seven pieces at once, says of her work “My work is abstract; delicate lines and patches of vibrant color contrast within fluid, muted washes. Details unfold like an onion. Hints of the human form are cradled within intangible environments or veiled by an abstract layer applied like lace across the body. I want my paintings to read like a universal language, connecting with the viewer before they know why the attraction is there. Suggesting tangible objects amidst unrecognizable ones seems to soothe those who are otherwise hesitant to engage with abstract art. Recognition can be a powerful force when faced with an unknown.”
