In Judith Schaechter’s new body of work, The Life Ecstatic, the
artist explores transcendent joy. Is there the possibility of a
moment of true synchronicity with one’s surroundings and
nature? Ecstasy can mean an emotional or religious frenzy or a
trancelike state; one’s subjective perception of time, space or
self may change or completely disappear.

Schaechter deliberately chooses images that are ambiguous
enough to handle multiple viewer interpretations. Interested in
the paradoxes of image-making and the tension between
illusion and truth, the artist examines the notion that we can
never gain the proper perspective necessary to gauge our current
“reality” without completely disassociating ourselves through time or space. We can look to representations, i.e. works of art, to temporarily resolve this dilemma.
