Since confirming her artistic and painting studies at the College of Art, Drawing and Composition in Hanover, Swiss artist Silvia SCHNEIDER has held various exhibitions in Switzerland,
Italy and France. With talent, she reveals her astonishing personality, which is complimented by her remarkably precise and pure graphical technique.
She brings her free, figurative style to life with a hardy pictorial temperament, and this is complimented by a brilliant use of material and brushstroke that stems from her palette of
original and airy colours. Whether it's a question of her inspired characters with their troubling and attentive expressions in an uncluttered and mysterious décor, or nudes with flexible
and harmonious bodies, or even the natural beauty of her horses, whose nobility gracefully exceeds normal convention, Silvia SCHNEIDER always preserves the generosity of her composition and
the magic quality of her colours. And this at times enhances simple and appealing snowy landscapes, which harbour an expressive originality inherent to many of her compositions, works which
elegantly poke fun at fashions and subjugated genres of realism.
