Judith Schaechter’s Surreal Stained Glass Works of Art

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

Judith Schaechter draws on Catholic iconography, contemporary culture, and Greek mythology to create stained glass works of art that recall Hieronymus Bosch’s chaotic hellscapes. Based in Philadelphia, Schaechter has work in the permanent collections of several world-renowned museums: Metropolitan Museum in New York, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the Hermitage in St. Petersburg, Russia, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, The Corning Museum of Glass, and The Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian Institution. She utilizes the timeworn art form of stained glass to create dark, surreal narratives that are quite removed from the religious imagery we typically expect from this medium.
