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. Through this process, Schnider’s paintings are meticulously planned, rigorously structured, organised and executed. Abstract, organically and geometrically shaped fields of color are superimposed onto monochrome backgrounds. Alternating between different colors, they oscillate between figure and the monochromatic backdrop upon which it is juxtaposed; positive and negative image.
