Thea Ide

Thea Ide, a Drake University Art Major, uses representational subject matter such as landscapes and responds formally to the abstraction within it. She uses repetition, scale, texture, light and compositional control to convey a sense of drama in her work. Thea states "I live on the Missouri River bank. It's ever changing, yet never changing qualities speak to me every day of the sensory and also of the sublime. My paintings seek to create a bridge between the concrete reality that we live and the abstract reality that we can only feel. I am interested in communicating abstract ideas like timelessness and fluidity, and in conveying a sense of drama by the juxtaposition of naturally occurring forms in nature."
