Elspeth Schulze is an interdisciplinary artist whose recent work explores the ways we view, value and seek to control the land. Site specific installations pair earth based materials like sand and petroleum based products like tarps and sandbags. Within these spaces, she tests the tenuous relationship between the natural and the manmade. Formal play informs an object based practice, and concept is cultivated through material, process and form.

Schulze is from south central Louisiana, where water has as much hold as land. She holds a BA in Literature from Loyola University New Orleans, and an AAS in Fashion Design from the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York. She has worked over the years as an artist assistant, pattern maker, production manager, and most recently, as Gallery Director at Adrian College in Adrian, Michigan. She is currently an MFA candidate at the University of Colorado, Boulder. Recent exhibition venues include the Oklahoma Contemporary in Oklahoma City, the Refinery in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and Calico in Brooklyn, New York.
