This eclectic successful artist, E.B.Schott, is an emerging Abstract Expressionist who is a perceptive, visual, kinesthetic, universal, holistic learner who sees the world in pictures and numbers. E.B.Schott experiments with her palette by composing her works of contemporary abstract expression with multi-media; incorporating oils, acrylics and encaustic, inspired and aided by nature. She channels the Zeitgeist of our times into her creations.
E.B.Schott (AKA Christine Forster) was born in Upstate New York and raised in NYC and Austria. E.B.Schott sees the world differently than others see it. When she started school, she was slotted into special education resource rooms of deep dark clouds of stagnation, temporarily trapping her untapped creativity. After three years of intense training in learning how to read, E.B.Schott started to read at the age of twelve. The world began to open up to her and E.B. built on her strengths, spontaneously writing poetry. She wrote copiously. At the age of fifteen, she dropped her black pilot gel pen and decided to paint. She was considered an outsider artist since she was not trained to paint. Her work has won prizes at FASST (Fine Arts of the Southern Tier) and her art exhibits consistently at the First Friday Art Walk, throughout several galleries in Binghamton, New York. Her works have exhibited at Congressman Hanna’s office; her creations are exhibiting at Lost Dog Café in Binghamton, NY and are housed throughout the world in private collections.
Creations flow out of the artist’s mind’s eye via her fingertips, channeling the world’s energies, tapping into the Zeitgeist of our times. E.B.Schott utilizes automatist and dream elements as she rapidly executes her creations on canvas. She is a visual, kinesthetic, universal, holistic learner and sees the world in pictures and numbers. E.B.Schott is a hands-on painter, needing to taste, touch and feel her creations. She experiments with her palette composing her works of contemporary abstract expression with multi-media incorporating oils, acrylics and encaustic, inspired by nature. Her deep emotions and soul are reflected in her work.
E.B.Schott completed her first painting class at St. John’s University in the summer of 2012. She attained her Associates degree from SUNY Broome in 2012 with high honors; was part of the NYS Chancellor’s Academic Team in 2012 and is in the honor society, Phi Theta Kappa. She studied Studio Art and Art History at Binghamton University. She interned and assisted the director of The Bundy Museum in curating art exhibits in the Spring of 2015. She interned at the Arthamptons 2015/2016 Fine Art Fair and studied at the Vienna Academy of Visionary Art in Austria in the fall of 2015.
E.B.Schott is compelled to paint outside of the traditions of conformity. She sees her “disabilities” as gifts of “abilities” that have been given to her. She believes that the art of creating helps the artist escape the pain of daily life and thus heal the artist and the viewer. E.B.Schott’s conceptions give us all a glimpse of the varied, deep perspectives of life. You can see her work at her web site: www.ebschott.com or like her Facebook page www.facebook.com/ebschott
