HALF FULL is the evolution of the artist’s personal relationship with materials, process, and emotion. This new body of work is a dialogue on the challenge and seduction of glass and metal, the movement and communication between liquid and crystal. The visceral quality of glass speaks to Schutz’s intuitive process and fluidity of her language as an artist, a journey continually considering the body and wearability. Schutz’s pieces offer space for contemplation and places to hide—a dance between what’s revealed and obscured, porous and dense, light reflected and absorbed. Light itself becomes a material, saturated within the glass and reflected outward. An inward journey given form, the work connects fantasy and memory through the structure of jewelry and adornment.
RemarksJoin us for an artist talk about this new body of work and her current practice, 8 July, 7pm at Brooklyn Metal Works.
Trained as a graphic designer and printmaker, Biba Schutz has been a practicing, self-taught metal smith and jeweler for more than 20 years. She is well known for combining unexpected materials with metal in her wearable art. In 2012, she began incorporating glass into her jewelry designs and was the recipient of an Artist Residency at The Corning Museum of Glass in the spring of 2014.
Schutz’s works can be found in public and private collections around the world including the Racine Art Museum, Racine, WI; Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, DC; and Rotasa Foundation, Mill Valley, CA. She has received the Award of Excellence from the American Craft Council and the Award of Excellence in Jewelry at the Smithsonian Craft Exhibition. She currently lives and works in New York City.
