Paula Schubatis is a Detroit-based artist, as well as purveyor of all things bright and glittery.

Schubatis explores urban landscapes through woven textiles, paint, and found materials, using material remnants of the past to manipulate the tactile experience of the present, in an attempt to “assert connections to the past by strengthening links to the present”, and blur the distinction between art and artifact.

Her process breaks down spaces into modular components, and reassembles them into monolithic structures, using her own contrived systems of hierarchy, informed by such institutions as philosophy, nature, science, and theology. These permutations of space attempt to relate to the world through the unique way they inhabit each space they are in, but often find themselves awkwardly alienated.

She describes herself as 'captivated' by the interactions of colors and forms, and has an intimate and fluid understanding of their dynamic relationships.

Schubatis is currently the Art Teacher at Detroit Community High School.
