Lancaster Arts Hotel Art
“Art to me is about discovery….I encourage [my students] to not get 'precious' with their work, [to] be ready to always risk it for something new. Once we get too precious, then we stop growing the work. It is a metaphor for life.”
- Susan J. Gottlieb, Lancaster artist

Exhibit: "Looking Back"
ORIGINALLY A STUDY OF STILL-LIFE, “Looking Back” was meant to be an experiment with painting antique pieces and blending modern elements into old-style settings. The concept of the show was spurred by a preliminary painting of a pair of roller skates that Peachey had as a child. At first, she was interested in trying to satisfy her desire to place painted figures in less-contemporary places while incorporating modern objects such as cell phones and iPods. This “push-and-pull” type of work, as she describes it, eventually became bothersome; she found, through this process of adventurous integration, that she felt very uncomfortable attempting to assimilate such modern objects into such retrospective and nostalgic paintings. As a result, Peachey decided to give in to her innate love of antique objects and themes and base her new collection on these. “It’s funny how it starts in one place and then ends up in a different place,” she says. Accordingly, the pieces in the new exhibition feature outdated clothing items, Coke in traditional-style glass bottles, an old tricycle, and many others in “timeless” settings like restaurants and diners.
