2018, Muddy Peonies, 48 by 72, OilIn both art and architecture, Schweitzer explores the framing of space itself. Her current focus is large-scale painting that hover between reality and a dream space. Assistant curator of the Whitney Museum, Marcela Guerrero, recently selected one of her large scale works, Toucan’s World, for a BWAC exhibit in Redhook, NYC, summer 2018. In 2017, assistant curator of the Whitney Museum, Laura Phipps, selected another work for a BWAC juried show, Jungle Dream. (Both featured below).
Schweitzer provides art to her architecture clients all over the US. She constructs atmospheres where murals and paintings are integrated with the architecture. This recalls the spirit of total design that dates as far back as Giotto and earlier. Her art is informed by her understanding of space within structures and how art unfolds within a room. She studied art formally at Princeton University as an undergraduate, and later at The New York Academy of Art in 1991 and 1999. She began studying painting as a teenager at Trinity School in NYC.
Schweitzer is greatly inspired by the Jewish concept that every visual detail of the world has a divine Source.
