Personal Statement

Mindy Rose Schwartz is a sculptor living in Chicago. She is interested in the way an individual’s experiences with and memories of, mass-produced objects, can alter their intended meaning and function. She makes sculptures that attempt to show the morphing effect, use, experience, and emotion can have on our perception of things.
