    As they say, everyone looks the same in the dark but focusing in the light of art creativity, Judith Schaechter for her show Dark Matter that opened last September 4th at Claire Oliver Gallery definitely carved out her own niche.  Featuring eight stained glass light boxes and ten new sculptures, everyone was enticed and played on the observation of beauty. Such beauty cannot be kept under wraps or in the dark. Maybe there is a flip side to all of this beauty. Madness perhaps? But oh what a lovely way to get unhinged. Go and lose yourself to the works beautifully crafted by this artist. It’s the best way to view life – at its bare naked light and in the cloak of darkness. This can result into gray matter that thinks beyond all reason.
