Schaub’s Work to be Featured at Helmholz Fine Art
Lisa Helmholz-Adams will host an opening cocktail reception for ‘Art Dreaming About Itself,’ a signature exhibition of works on paper from visual artist Stephen Schaub, an innovator whose artworks defy classification, on Saturday, February 13, from 5 to 7:30 p.m. The show at at Helmholz Fine Art debuts in Manchester before moving on to New York City where it will hang in a gallery located on 57th Street. Schaub invented many of the processes used to create his work, capturing his ideas on light-sensitive material that becomes a visual springboard from which the final artwork is born. Each piece is created as a one-of-one artwork; no other versions are made.
“Schaub’s process brings together processes and materials from throughout thousands of years of art history. The encaustic process he employs dates from the Fifth Century BC. The Amate paper he uses has been hand-made in Mexico using the same technique for the last 3,000 years,” said Helmholz-Adams.
“My mark-making techniques are inspired by the earliest forms of art, such as petroglyphs and pictographs, dating back tens of thousands of years,” added Schaub.
