VARENA SCHWARZ FINE ART
"My passion is exploring and creating communicative connections by combining and playing with various means of expression ranging from painting, sculpture, photography, and architecture to performance, poetry and prose. Using the language of metaphor, symbolism, and context, I enjoy being thought-provoking by juxtaposing objects, imagery, and text in unexpected ways. And yet, I aim at staying viscerally appealing, aesthetically pleasing, and if possible light-hearted in the process.
"Born in Germany, I moved to the United States in the mid-nineties and now live in New Mexico and Colorado.
"I have worked as a cross-cultural educator in countries around the world. For the past decade, I have focused on art making which includes the design and construction of my off-grid Nautilus shaped Ferro-cement home and studio in Southern Colorado."
