Sandhi Schimmel Gold
SANDHI SCHIMMEL GOLD —"My work reflects our society's obsession with beauty through advertising - and the endless images that bombard us daily. It is a purposeful intermix of images derived from advertising and thousands of incongruent pieces - images and text - from advertising that arrives through my mailbox. I appropriate these images and create them anew. Assembled like a mosaic; the paper tiles create an entirely new image - an eclectic and tactile portrait reworked in my imagination, utilizing materials that would otherwise go to waste."
Sandhi’s vision is, “to perfectly join the disciplines of painting & mosaic to create a connected collection of representational images in segments of color - utilizing resources that would otherwise go to waste.”
Gold has participated in several group and solo exhibitions throughout the United States, and her work is included in many corporate and museum collections, including the Ripley’s Museums and Scottsdale Center for the Arts. Commissioned work available through Chasen Galleries upon request.
