Zoe Pettijohn Schade in the New York Times Magazine


Now That’s Old-School

In an art world that encourages hugeness, the painter Zoe Pettijohn Schade emphasizes tiny repeating forms, juxtaposing hungry sharks against the most intricate lace. She takes inspiration, she tells Bomb magazine, from textiles and 18th-century gouache pattern paintings and from echoes of those patterns in present-day life. Then and now, repetition and hidden understructures soothe us as monsters play and “hide in plain sight.”

Fulbright U.S. Research Scholars Grant


I am excited to announce that I have been awarded the 2012-13 Fulbright U.S. Scholars Grant to Paris. It is to continue my drawings of a rare collection of gouache pattern paintings from the 1700s at the Bibliothèque Forney, and make full scale paintings in response. The grant is for six months beginning in February, 2013. I am so thrilled and honored!
