Sylvia Schwartz works with fabric, paint, paper, resin, and weaving. Schwartz has worked extensively at Dieu Donne Papermill, primarily casting with molds made directly from findings on the beach. Her work focuses on themes of movement and stillness, incorporating textiles, found objects, and forms from nature washed up on the shore. Schwartz received a degree in fine art from the Victorian College of the Arts in Melbourne, Australia, and later studied sculpture at Columbia University. Her work has been shown in exhibitions in Manhattan, New Jersey, and Brooklyn, including BWAC, Nurture Art, ODETTA, Lesley Heller Gallery and the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey. She lives and works in New York City.
