Odette Steinert was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. She graduated in 2021 from Bard College with a BA in Studio Art. Her recent group of paintings were made throughout her senior year during the pandemic lockdown. The series includes paintings of herself and close friends, habitating in the same interior day after day, week after week. The images explore feelings of being trapped with minds humming of anxiety, excitement, potential and disappointment. The figures/friends embrace each other and lean against each other; sometimes opposite, sometimes alone.
