About Odile Kidd
Odile Kidd's interest is based primarily in expressing her subject matter in a way that reflects each subject's individuality. For her, the playfulness of a horse or the grandeur of a macaw is paramount. She states, “For me, emotion or the search for feeling through faithfulness in depiction and detail, forms the essence of my work...I am searching for truth and my preference is to work larger than life in order to increase the importance of my subject”. Odile is a minimalist in composition preferring to devote all detail to her subjects and maintaining the background as peripheral. Her métier ranges from drawing to charcoal to acrylic on canvas and panels. For the latter, color is predominant while the animal pose is pivotal to the composition.
