About

Jackie Shatz' wall sculptures encapsulate various suspended states of being. The images of swimming, floating and about-to gestures imply anticipation, hesitancy, anxiety or relief from anxiety. While she did not set out to express these psychological states - they emerged from the selection of the actions and creation of the pieces themselves. The meanings are hidden like the meanings in dreams. These works ride the edge between painting and sculpture; between stillness and movement; between the figurative and the abstract.There is a tension implied between the permanence of a captured moment and the transience of a movement suspended in time. The dimensions of the sculptures allow one to look into an intimate space; they owe a debt to the scale and narratives of Medieval art. Jackie Shatz is a sculptor, painter, teacher and lecturer. She attended Bennington College and earned a BFA in painting (magna cum laude) and an MFA in sculpture, both from Hunter College. Shatz feels that her recent pieces fall somewhere between painting and sculpture, stillness and movement, and figurative and abstract. “The images of swimming, floating and ‘about to’ gestures imply anticipation, hesitancy, anxiety or relief from anxiety.” The dimensions of her sculptures “allow one to look into an intimate space” and she believes they “owe a debt to the scale and narratives of Medieval art.” Shatz's work has been displayed in numerous solo and group shows, including exhibitions at the June Kelly, Monique Knowlton, and Kouros galleries in New York City. She has also curated and organized countless exhibitions, including “CollageLogic,” which was last presented in 2012 at Hampden Gallery at UMass in Amherst. Shatz is a recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts Individual Fellowship, a Craft Alliance New Techniques grant and several NYFA SOS grants. She has been artist-in-residence at the Kohler Arts/Industry program, where she created a series of music box sculptures and has collaborated on sound and sculptural installations for Glyndor Gallery at Wave Hill and on Governors Island. She has taught and lectured at many places, including at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. Her work has been reviewed by The New York Times, The New York Daily News, and The Village Voice, among others.
