Clyde Connell

Clyde Connell achieved a national reputation before her death in 1998. The artist lived and worked in a remote idyllic setting on Lake Bistineau south of Shreveport. The ancient art and culture of that setting mysteriously penetrate her quite contemporary work often characterized by empathy for those enduring suffering. Clyde Connell’s sculptures are evocative of ritualistic totems and primitive votive objects; her paintings employ primitive markings and pictographs associated with talismanic shapes.
