Path to Paradise: panel I

<em>In a stingy world, a little bit of sensual pleasure is a good thing. </em> —Judith Schaechter <strong>I. The Path to Paradise: Judith Schaechter’s Stained-Glass Art</strong> With deep respect for history, a provocative rebelliousness, and a feminist sensibility, Judith Schaechter has aptly been called a “post-punk stained-glass sorceress.” Her stained-glass panels are mouth-watering seductions, alternative visions of beauty, and radical statements of female experience. From her start in the 1980s, Schaechter has single-handedly stretched the medium of stained glass into an incisive art form for the twenty-first century. Her singular style and personal iconography have developed over three decades, resulting in a body of more than 225 stained-glass panels. Her influences include Northern Renaissance painters, MAD magazine, Greek mythology, and neuroscience. Schaechter’s working process is equally diverse, incorporating online image sourcing, doodling, Photoshop, and her masterful manipulation of the glass medium. On the path to paradise, difficult, ugly moments can illuminate truth, and if we are lucky, lead the way to enlightenment. Schaechter’s dark, mysterious, and psychological narratives in bright, brilliant colors and complex patterns capture the artist’s empathy for the human condition.
