Biography         Statement          CV          Press

“Through collages and sculptures built from vintage book parts, I tell stories of color, shape and form. The work plays with deconstruction, reconstruction, and changing dimensionality. This process transports me into a world of adventure and surprise, while providing the freedom to explore new concepts organically.”

– Conny Goelz Schmitt

“Conny Goelz Schmitt infuses balance and harmony into her sculptural endeavors. A collage artist at heart, Schmitt creates wall-protruding, ceiling-suspended, and pedestal-elevatedsculptures from vintage books.”

– Grace Griffin, Boston Globe

“In my work I deconstruct discarded vintage books, on the hunt for textured surfaces and faded colors. By means of décollage the element of chance becomes an integral part of my process. While extending the margins of my compositions I build new space, always conscious to maintain balance and harmony within the work. The interplay of sizes, shapes and color leads me on a search for their perfect placement. Through considered alteration and arrangement of my salvaged and manipulated materials I create geometric collages and assemblages. This pursuit for balance and harmony becomes a meditation, leading to new interpretations of past and present.”
