The figure in Big Bang stands upon what the artist describes as a little “planet of doom” in the process of exploding. A bird flying up and away is attached to the hand grenade in her chest, its pin about to be yanked out. In the other direction, the woman is drawn down by a tiny fetal clown attached to her by rope. She is tethered and threatened from multiple directions.

Schaechter’s images are personal and universal, with figures designed to connect with her life and experiences as well as with viewers across time. The absence of specific details that can lock an image in time, such as clothing, is an intentional omission.
