There is not one moment or a set of objects that I am most interested in. It's more about the space between and the experience of various places, ideas and things.

Lydia Bassis

About the Artist


Lydia Bassis (b. 1977) is an abstract artist living and working in Seattle, WA. Originally trained as a printmaker, her narrative paintings employ an invented language of personal symbols that drift, collide and eclipse each other as they navigate within contemplative compositions. Working intuitively, Lydia’s paintings and drawings explore the unseen phenomenon of our world, capturing energy and experiences that can’t be put into words.
