Two Trees = Five Doors, oil, photographs, 48" x 46", 2002

Naomi Kark Schedl received her B.F.A and M.F.A. in Painting from School of Art at Yale University. Other post graduate work has been done at American University, University of Iowa, and Penland School of Art and Crafts. She is currently living in Iowa City, Iowa.

About her work, Naomi writes, "My paintings have moved from river landscapes to woodlands which now include figurative aspects. I am also interested in social comment. Encroaching Woodland [another piece] is a comment on the destruction of woodland for a development. I therefore used a strong diagonal line for the window in contrast to the movement of the foliage. Similarly, Two Trees = Five Doors is an ironic comment on cutting down trees. In both I have used the reality of photographs against the hand of the artist and the enjoyment of the painting process."
