Jamie Schorsch is Doing the Time Warp!

Time Warp 2018 explores an artistic connection between our past and present selves. How have we evolved? How has our journey as artists changed us and our work? When given the opportunity to look upon our past work with new eyes, how would it inspire us to create? How would our growth, our experiences, our outlooks change how we would approach the same project, assignment, or piece? The Time Warp 2018 exhibition asked artists to create something new while looking back to their past work for inspiration. Artists were required to submit two works, one from the past and one from the present to be exhibited together. All past work was required to be at least ten years old (circa 2008) with the preference being for work that is meaningful to the artist and a specific period of their lives.

OHHS Art and Design teacher Jamie Schorsch will be exhibiting work in Time Warp 2018! The majority of Schorsch’s pieces are an autobiographical self-analysis. Throughout the past decade, the focus of her work has been deconstructing concepts of identity through fairy tales and characters from literature, while integrating representations and interpretations from popular culture.  Psychology, mythology, religion, literature, and history inspire the conceptual and visual development for her artworks resulting in images created that illustrates visual, social, and spiritual explorations in relation to modern societal standards and personal experiences. Schorsch’s pieces “Hard to Swallow” and “Hecate” are both self-portraits addressing the subconscious self through symbolic imagery.
