Chrysalis by artist Jyoti Schon
Schon offered some thoughts about his growth as an artist, stating, "In 1989 I moved to Santa Fe, NM and within a year something very unexpected occurred. After more than ten years of creative work in two dimensional media, I suddenly experienced a strange and abrupt loss of interest in working within the confines of the flat plane and my focus shifted away from painting towards sculpture, particularly stone sculpture. I have since created a diverse body of work."
Art critic Brian Sherwin, Editor of The Art Edge, commented on Jyoti’s sculptures, saying, "Jyoti’s impressive sculptures appear to embrace the constructivist artistic philosophy. However, one can also sense a solid appreciation for various visual and design traditions from throughout the world. His work offers a shamanistic quality that is clearly ‘rooted’ in the past -- revealing long-standing designs that define us as a collective people."
