Marc Jancou Contemporary is pleased to show a selection of works by Albrecht Schnider.
Albrecht Schnider devotes a new group of works to monochromatic planes of colours, two each paired on a white sheet of paper. The works elaborate on a small group of prints created between 2006 and 2008. They are all in portrait format and identical size: 21 by 14.8cm. They are printed on paper produced by Hahnemuhle FineArt with a paperweight of 190 grams per square meter.
Albrecht Schnider, born in 1958 in Lucerne, works in painting, drawing and small-scale sculpture. The artist’s complex image construction process is both creative and constructive; beginning within the dialogically-linked act of drawing and the analysis of shape, to the choice of color and form.
