DESCRIPTION

When is a picture plane open or closed? When does it offer you room for imagining fullness and vacancy, formulation and happenstance that we define as a picture or as ‘pictureness’? Albert Schnider (born 1958 in Lucerne) pursues these fundamental questions in his paintings and drawings and formulates—besides the abstraction of the possible and the manifold—also the longing he/we have for the pictorial.
At Galerie Bob van Orsouw, Albrecht Schnider is showing his current paintings of geometric motifs. The exhibition includes small-scale and two very large-scale formats. In Schnider’s many-faceted paintings, drawings and object-oriented works, the formulation with geometric figurations is aligned with the thematic contents of his other subjects.
