Agony and Ecstasy: Contemporary Stained Glass by Judith Schaechter

September 20, 2019 - January 5, 2020

Event Navigation

Judith Schaechter’s work probes the extremes of human experience and the intersection of the body and mind.

The overpowering emotions of agony and ecstasy are similar in intensity and create tension between illusion and truth. An important contributor to contemporary glass, Schaechter uses the very old and traditional medium of stained glass to create modern narrative artworks full of pathos, power, melancholy, and mystery.

Stained glass has its origins in medieval Europe as an architectural element used to decorate churches and deliver religious messages. Although Schaechter doesn’t focus on religious content, she invokes the aura of religiosity in her artwork to enhance the seductive power of her images.
