About

Charlotte Schmid-Maybach’s "Terrain" is a contemporary photographic tapestry measuring 25” x 36”. This multimedia work is made with the artist’s own photographs printed on archival Kyozo paper, cotton thread, metallic paint, and pins. This tapestry features multiple prints that combine to form an abstract composition of black, orange, blue, and yellow with interwoven threads of various colors and metallic paint adding detail. In addition to thread, this piece also features the use of various pins which add to the tapestry’s texture and dimensionality, both inviting the viewer to observe the work up close and trace its lines to new discoveries. For Charlotte, the process of incorporating thread into her pieces elevates the age-old idea of sewing as “woman’s work” to a higher art form. Her use of multilayered materials combined with the photographic image evoke a sense of magic, calling upon our own associations with nature whether that be through emotion or past experience. Charlotte muses that, “perhaps our experiences in life are like threads, sewn over and over into our daily experience.” Charlotte is heavily inspired by the majestic old growth forests and crumbling walls at Fort Warden on Puget Sound. Rocks weathered by wind and sea, trees that traverse the landscape, water that flows to its primordial rhythm, and the scenic markings of time all serve to inform her compositions. Charlotte Schmid-Maybach is a photographer and mixed media artist based in Los Angeles. Originally from San Francisco, CA, she earned her BA from UC Berkeley and MA in photojournalism from the University of Missouri in Columbia, Missouri. Her background as an archaeological photographer in Pakistan and years as a newspaper photojournalist have informed her artwork. Charlotte works with artist Tom Wudl at his studio and has recently exhibited her work at the Neutra Institute Museum and Gallery and at The Colburn School of Music.
