About Wade Schaming

Wade Schaming (b. 1984; Pittsburgh, PA) lives and works in New York City. His sculptures are painstakingly assembled solely through processes of stacking. The materials remain unchanged – used as is/found – and are unfixed to each other: as such, he creates delicate juxtapositions perilously balanced, like thought given concrete form. From discarded and forgotten objects, which memorialize hope, the assembled forms aspire to return dignity to the bearer and evoke empathy in the viewer. This process is site-specific and confined to the present moment: because he works only with found and discarded materials (nothing used is purchased), his pieces reflect their origins while reinforcing a desire to create impermanence.

Schaming studied at the University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA (BA 2006) and the School of Visual Arts, New York, NY (MFA 2010). His work has been exhibited throughout the United States, including at the Bronx Museum of the Arts, Bronx, NY, Field Projects, New York, NY, The Museum of Human Achievement, Austin, TX and Primary Projects, Miami, FL. He has been profiled/interviewed by Paper Magazine, International Sculpture Center and The New York Times. Residency awards include the Artist in the Marketplace (AIM) program, Bronx, NY (2012), Residency 108, Clermont, NY (2014), the Keyholder Residency at the Lower East Side Printshop, New York, NY (2015), Yaddo, Saratoga Springs, NY (2016), Constance Saltonstall Foundation for the Arts, Ithaca, NY (2017), The Edward F. Albee Foundation, Montauk, NY (2017), Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts, Nebraska City, NE (2017) and Jentel Foundation, Banner, WY (2018).
