  • Much of Albrecht s work is inspired by the dreaminess of childhood, whether expressing her cloudy recollections of the storybooks she read as a child (stories populated by strange creatures, impossible happenings, and oneiric landscapes), or the forested West Coast landscapes that surrounded her. On the pages of Idyll, a series of interconnected myths emerges fully formed, each myth articulating a sense of wistfulness for a past that never was. By turns surreal, fantastical, and absurdist, Albrecht constructs these pieces with the vivid yet subtle values that are a product of her silk-screening work. Idyll employs female iconography in myriad ways many of these works feature female figures, the lushness of the natural environment, and female-associated textures (ornamental detail, as well as lace and other fabrics). Albrecht s Idyll communicates questions about loneliness, passivity, and loss through investigations of femininity and nostalgia for an imagined past.
