Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Michelle Stitzlein is an American artist who creates found object art / sculpture from recycled materials. She received a BFA in 1989 from the Columbus College of Art and Design (in Columbus, Ohio). She and her husband Nathaniel Stitzlein (also an artist) founded Art Grange Studios in Baltimore, Ohio. At Art Grange they share their love of art with the public by offering tours of the studios as well as art workshops for all ages. Stitzlein's assemblages of mostly discarded materials propels the viewer to reassess that which is often overlooked. "As an artist and as a person, I ask myself to look closer, lest I miss the one exquisite trait in something oftentimes regarded as distasteful, old, tired, unimpressive or just plain ugly so that I may see it again with fresh eyes. "Kurt Shaw writes, "If, as the Jungian psychoanalyst and poet Clarissa Pinkola Estes would have us believe, butterflies are "Soul Birds," then Stitzlein sets the mind free to wonder not what junk is, but what it can be."show more
