MFA Studio Art 2023
Eleanor Scholz is a San Francisco based artist who specializes in Pyrography. With a hand tool similar to a soldering iron, Scholz burns intricate illustrations into wood, using pattern and the obsessive mark as a vehicle to evoke the sacred and the sublime. Scholz's artwork is an act of devotion, and an exploration of her powerful desire to love and protect the irreplaceable. She aims to provoke that same feeling of reverence in others in the hopes of inspiring action and change.
