Judith Schaechter - Claire Oliver Gallery

Judith Schaechter

With brilliant color and dazzling beauty, Schaechter seduces the viewer to look closely at her work. The artist states: “Beauty is what has always captured the viewer’s attention and allows them to spend time with my work. Once involved, it is easier for them to read the content held just below the surface.” By design, nothing in Schaechter’s lightboxes allows for a straightforward narrative or a single meaning.  Schaechter deliberately chooses images that are ambiguous enough to handle multiple viewer interpretations. Interested in the paradoxes of image-making and the tension between illusion and truth, the artist examines the notion that we can never gain the proper perspective necessary to gauge our current “reality” without completely disassociating ourselves through time or space. We can look to representations, i.e. works of art, to temporarily resolve this dilemma.

Judith Schaechter’s title Almost Better Angels is from a chapter in Robert Sapolsky’s book Behave. The author concludes that human beings have guarded reasons for optimism when it comes to our biological nature driving our destiny.  In these days of mass media’s ‘apocalypse-du-jour’, most artists have questioned their artistic motives and inspirations and have looked for a way to contribute to positive change.  Judith Schaechter is among these enthusiastic voices.

It has become increasingly difficult to discern fact from fiction. Voyeurism is in, yet can we believe what we see? In today’s digitized, Instagram world, nothing is sure; one always must distrust. Photoshop naturalizes the false. Any image can be manipulated, cropped, retouched, enhanced, any sound altered, any voice “Auto-Tuned” until no authenticity remains. Reality T.V. is artifice with predictable narrative, directed and scripted dialogue, and post-production editing that seamlessly delivers emotional attachment and pleasure in between strategically placed commercial breaks. In “CelebReality” everyone can vicariously share Warhol’s 15 minutes of fame not so readily found in our work a day lives.

In Judith Schaechter’s new body of work, The Life Ecstatic, the artist explores transcendent joy. Is there the possibility of a moment of true synchronicity with one’s surroundings and trancelike state; one’s subjective perception of time, space or self may change or completely disappear.
