SAM SCHONZEIT: Five Years in Marfa

 
How, as adults, can we stay fresh? How can we produce anew? How can we explore? How can we continue to play? Why must adulthood be a push to deepen rather than broaden? Why must an artist be required to rigorously work toward a conceptual or formal mastery? Cannot he or she work toward a triumph of sensibility?

These are the questions New York born artist, Sam Schonzeit, has been asking himself  while living in Marfa, Texas as a part-time teacher and full-time creative for the past five years. 

The works in this show are indicative or emblematic of a sort of schizophrenic practice that he has developed and indulged in during this time. Schonzeit has been prolifically creating works in all sizes and mediums: collage, painting, sculpture, drawing, etc. His experiments evoke the fearlessness he has observed in his grade school students; not thinking too much, expanding his vocabulary, playing. He has sought to cultivate a childish egoism that he theorizes may be integral to being an artist. 
By clinging to a naïve confidence, a trust of intuition, and a sense of worthiness of one's own ideas Schonzeit has immerged with an energetic and unique body of work that is the raw product of his artistic homeschooling. This show will act as the culminating thesis for Schonzeit's exploration of the maintenance of innocence.
