Liesl Schubel
Brooklyn, NY



ARTIST STATEMENT: I am constructing a body of work built upon romantic gesture, structural failure, and the necessity of instability. Centered around an acute awareness of gravity, my collage, sculpture, and performance proposes that a questionable foundation may be the best to build upon. Bound specifically to the doomed perfection of the Classical Age, I simultaneously idolize and refute Greco-Roman aesthetics. Ancient architecture was built with exactitude, and ancient bodies carved with measured beauty, but my inspiration dwells in the missteps of structure and sculpture. Vertical lines are made to bend and slump. Bodies of gods and titans are made fleshy, unstable, and human. When perfection crumbles, there are beginnings to be found in the ruins.
