Description: Syndy Ziegenfuss' mixed-media artwork combines multiple materials, found objects and a unique layering process, which adds a depth of emotion that evokes both familiarity and mystery. The artist has an intrinsic ability to seamlessly fuse ordinary images and sensibilities into the extraordinary, where the non-essential becomes essential and the abandoned becomes fully embraced. Her work has been shown nationally and upcoming shows include State Street Gallery at Robert Morris College, Chicago and Chicago's Looptopia. The studio is based in Chicago, but we were in LA for three years and have a large client base in the LA and Northern CA. Syndy's artwork is large scale and fits the CA style of homes.
