"SUZHOU REFLECTIONS" is a new painting created from wonderful memories of a trip to China. Suzhou is the Venice of China with all of its charm and an artist's paradise.
"I have seen Ms. Albrecht bring enthusiasm and intelligence to the refinement of her obvious painting tallents. In addition, she expresses esthetic sensitivities within her painting, further testifying, thereby, to her assured future as an American painter of note."
Irving Shapiro, AWS, Former President and Director of American Academy of Art
"The integration of the exotic and the sublime, Albrecht's paintings take us to a world beyond that of everyday, ordinary life, touching a place deep inside our soul."
INFORMED COLLECTOR (Daily Briefs About Today's Finest Artists)
On this site you will find many paintings created in various mediums and subject matter. Some paintings are painted in watercolor on watercolor paper, on YUPO, on textured watercolor paper, but the paintings I am most passionate about are those created in mixed water media on canvas and handmade paper, depicting the ancient global rock writings, known as petroglyphs and pictographs. These disappearing images are fragile and have fallen victim, often times, to looting, vandalism, and weathering from the elements. I have documented many of these writings from Hawaii, Australia, Africa, China and the USA. It is through my paintings that I hope to evoke a connection to this vanishing distant past.
I hope that you enjoy your visit. If you have any questions, or have an interest in purchasing a painting, please contact me at 312-320-0833.
"When I create, it is my desire to evoke a connection to the viewers of my work, to have them experience the emotional excitement I feel at the time I pick up the brush." Ingrid
