Southern Artists To Know: Aldwyth

Collage and Assemblage
Hilton Head, S.C. 

Known for her physical distance from the art world over the past several decades, Aldwyth’s decision to often spend years on one piece attracts major museums to her much anticipated collage and assemblage works. These pieces are carefully crafted with nods to elements of folk art and Surrealism — each collection of images and items tells its own unique story. Although she appears to be a fairly private person, the artist’s pieces often reflect realities of her own life. Her work is celebrated in public collections and exhibitions throughout the South. Now in her late 70s, Aldwyth calls an octagonal house by South Carolina’s salt marsh her home, and the it’s the place where her art comes to life.
