Being a Woman II
Oil on canvas | 2023
In this new work, Schott explores what it means to be a woman. We see hints of a female figure on the left side of the work, surrounded by strong, wild areas of color in an ultramarine blue, in which characters and scribbles have been incorporated. The oil paint creates sumptuous depth and contrast.
Describing Schott’s work, Curator Nell Cardozo writes: “There is a kind of generous intimacy in Schott's use of color that creates a subtle interplay between well-being and longing. Looking at her work is like looking at a dream that belongs to a collective consciousness.”

“As an abstract painter, I am not so much interested in a real-world image as I want to bring reflections and feelings into my work.”
