Inside the Artist's Studio with Charlotte Schulz
Tuesday, August 18 at 3:00pm
Charlotte Schulz creates large-scale charcoal drawings where personal sensibilities tangle with larger collective experiences such as natural disasters, social upheaval, and fears about global warming. They are composed of small discrete images ranging over expansive spaces woven together narratively. Assembling torn section of paper she creates an oddly shaped and undulating final drawing – taking on a sculptural sensibility. Her process is at once additive, subtractive, and improvisational. Pieces can be added to the size of the drawing, removed with eraser, built upon the surface or with edges torn leaving a missed piece of the scene, as an evolving narrative emerges. By mixing up the actual and illusionary, Schulz creates a visual correspondence to forces felt in the world and in us – forces both intimate as well as social and environmental. Informed by extensive reading her work draws upon Buddhist teachings, news, events, and poetry.
