The Vengeance Quilt, 2016
40 x 30 inches, oil on canvas
San Francisco based artist Zedekiah Schild's lively abstractions are hewn directly from emotional memory and the things the artist encounters in his community. Schild's voracious patterns, textures, and rhythms are drawn from his day-to-day work as a carpenter in San Francisco, California and his identity as a working class artist in America. "Endeavoring to maintain simplicity of line and unashamed naïveté, I work from a deconstructed process, often absorbing a subject by casually conversing with a friend in the studio while I paint, or, working obliquely from the memories of a place, a gesture or a phrase," writes Schild. His compositions are animated, his surfaces beautifully textured. Sometimes figurative, sometimes non-representative, Schild's paintings are vivacious rhythmic summations of his daily life.
