Conny Goelz-Schmitt brings new meaning to old books in her exhibition Uncovered. She sculpts found books, selecting each one for its formal qualities, into bright and elegant assemblages that mount on the wall. Her works take on new meanings as collages, shrines, or totems.
Conny is a sculptor and collage artist. She was named Sculptor of the Year by the Chief Curator of Boston University, Kate McNamara in their 69th Member's Prize Show. She studied Sinology and German Literature at Eberhard Karls University in Tuebingen, Germany and lived in Taiwan before she moved to the United States eighteen years ago. Her work can be found in private collections in Europe and the US. Conny has a studio in Beverly, Massachusetts.
