Podlach’s images of women and men start by observing her own reflection in a mirror, a man she knows modeling, or photos of women and or men from other eras. Each image becomes a unique individual apart from herself, the photograph and outside observation. She searches until they are captured and experiencing their own moment, with their own history. Once individuals and couples come alive and compelling on the canvas she knows how to work on and complete the painting. Her still lives and landscapes are also the result of seeking to present an image that was born and exists outside of time. They are also a creation begun with observation, and completed through the process of something new being found as the canvas develops and though her confidence of what is true beyond and beneath what she see directly.
