Cath Schimert, Princeton, NJ Member Since March 2012 Artist Statement Hello, and welcome to my Galleries!
I am a dedicated professional photographer and painter. I studied at the Art Institute of Chicago and Cooper Union in New York City, and received my Master of Fine Arts Degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I have exhibited my work extensively on the East Coast, as well as winning awards in diverse National Shows.
I have a passion for interpreting all that is sensory - exploring light, color, texture, fine detail, and overall ambience. My most recent endeavors have been multifaceted - focusing on floral photography, often with an unconventional approach; working with surreal sets created in my studio; photographing the urban landscape; representing source imagery as pure abstraction. The manipulation of depth of field and of focus in general have become important elements in my work.
I love having the opportunity to interpret so much of what life and nature have to offer with my unique psychological perspective.
I believe that each viewer contributes a personal sensibility to a work of art to make it his/her own, and that is what makes a carefully chosen work for purchase so special. Thanks so much for visiting my site!
