2018 Muddy Peonies, 48 by 72, OilIn both art and architecture, Schweitzer explores the framing of space itself. Her large-scale paintings 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 clients all over the US and as far as Japan. 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. 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’s work is inspired by the Kabbalistic Jewish concept that every visual detail of the world has a divine Source.
