    About The Work

    Works created for this body of work do not intend to be precise illustrations as much as they are a reflection of the mood of Poe’s tales and dark views of his historic residences. The interiors, both meditative and haunting in white folded paper, embrace an exquisite elegance, while channeling Poe’s dark creepiness.

    The style of Schubert’s interiors remain influenced by 19th Century Danish painter, Vilhelm Hammershoi, who employed low-key tones of grays to create a somber interior environment. Schubert works with similar tonalities, focusing on the scenes incoming natural window light and the shadows that play on his paper floors and walls. We step into these interiors both meditative and haunting, embracing their elegance while searching for meaning and our place in the world.
