Janel Schultz is an artist living and working in Brooklyn.
Fragments of animal characteristics are combined with the human body and abstracted to weave an emotional connection to existence. A particular emphasis on limbs seeks to echo the mobility of species. Inspired by migrations, clusters reflect herds and flocks. Parts are pulled from different environments, exaggerated and merged into a collection of hybrids, with reference to the real but hovering the line of imaginary. These hybrids aim to exist in the state of becoming, a liminal transition, to tease what is known and what is imagined.
