Schaller creates textural art pieces, which incorporate representational form with the printed word. Visual and written symbols merge to create a unique aesthetic language that anticipated to be both provocative and whimsical. His multiple-image pieces (two are at top), with images ranging from polka dots to popular culture, hope to evoke emotions and memories in the view. The combination of images tells a story and is intended to provoke a personal exchange between the art and the audience.
He’ll talk about and his career in the art world and various the mediums he has used, from encaustic to silkscreen.
