With deep respect for history, a provocative rebelliousness, and a feminist sensibility, Judith Schaechter has aptly been called a "post-punk stained-glass sorceress."
From her start in the 1980s, Judith Schaechter (b. 1961) has stretched the medium of stained glass into an incisive art form for the twenty-first century, boldly paving her path in the diverse arena of contemporary art. With deep respect for history, a provocative rebelliousness, and a feminist sensibility, Schaechter has aptly been called a "post-punk stained-glass sorceress." This catalog accompanies The Path to Paradise: Judith Schaechter's Stained-Glass Art, the first survey and major scholarly assessment of this groundbreaking artist's 37-year career. This catalog explores the range of critical registers Schaechter's work spans, illuminating and contextualizing the artist's unique contributions to the contemporary canon.
