The Haunting Stained Glass of Judith Schaechter

by Kirsten AndersonPosted on

Artist Judith Schaechter creates shockingly beautiful, heart rending images using the art of stained glass versus traditional painting. These moving images, often depicting longing and suffering, are meant to act as a catalyst to contemplating the duality that suffering doesn’t exist without ecstatic joy as well. Schaecter’s images also employ a duality in both the renaissance type imagery combined with a semi-cartoonish, contemporary sensibility. The artist often displays the windows with light boxes, bringing to mind not only the image of light through cathedral windows, but the bright richness of illuminated pixels on a computer screen versus the flatness of canvas.-Kirsten Anderson
