"On the Edge of Forever" is an impressive exhibition not only for the captivating images, but also as a tour de force showcasing Schuff's mastery of encaustic painting. The gallery's excellent installation and lighting highlight the deep colors and rich texture of her work, which includes mixed media such as glass ground into the surface of many paintings making them interesting to look at from many angles .

Ganymede’s Dream - Ganymede is Jupiter’s largest moon named after the mythological Trojan prince abducted by Zeus to serve him on Mount Olympus. Dream or nightmare, Michele’s depiction of this moon is as mysterious as its mythology fore-bearer.

The moons here are not a literal representations of these images, but a reflection of “How small and fragile we seem in this vast ocean of space and time.” Her artist statement reflects many of the big questions that artists and scientists alike have pondered throughout the ages about space and time.

Schuff's nephew Jack describes how Michele's inspiration stems from her fascination with images captured by the Hubble Space Telescope and other space missions.

Callisto is the second-largest moon of Jupiter, after Ganymede. It is the third-largest moon in the Solar System. The painting “Callisto’s Mirror” is evidence of Michele’s deep dive into space exploration.

Jupiter has the largest number of moons in our solar system, so Michele pays it a special tribute in her work. She gives us a sneak preview of "Jupiter, Storm". NASA released new images as a result of its "Juni" mission, which changed the scientific understanding of this giant among planets. Schuff took a blow torch to this work, creating an elaborate texture on the painting's gas and crystal like surface - setting this piece quite apart from the other objects in the exhibition. Tiny strokes of paint depict storms around Jupiter’s edge.

"Moone" is the centerpiece of Michele’s galaxy. It’s not the moon we know, but familiar enough and a good place to start our tour of this impressive exhibition! After all, its namesake is closest to the earth and hence "on the edge" of everything else. By that Michele really does mean everything that may reveal itself as the future unfolds, beyond the visible stars and planets to the vast galaxies beyond our humanly possible sight.

Sometimes myths and stereotypes are true. As an artist, Michele Schuff is often busy working deep into the night in pursuit of her creative obsessions while others are calmly dreaming in their sleep. “Thank goodness for the NASA channel,” Schuff says about the nocturnal programming which keeps night owls like Michele company when even the studio dogs have lumbered off to sleep.

We met up with artist Michele Schuff at the gallery just as they were putting on the finishing touches on the show’s installation.
