The work of Eric and Heather ChanSchatz spans a wide variety of media including painting, sculpture, and video, often combining references to all in one work. ChanSchatz begin each piece with their own specially developed archive housing thousands of character- based drawings. Invited guests – which have included soldiers, coal miners, university students, and curators – are then invited to select the images which will create the basis of the artwork. After layering, altering, and re-configuring the drawing material, the final composition is screen printed. In PTG.93 untitled (UN.0012), the silk canvas has been collaged with mirror-polished
stainless steel, a further element of refraction and simulation.
