French draughtswoman.

Anne-Marie Schneider studied at the Paris School of Fine Arts, and is mostly known for her drawings, although she also works with sculpture and film. In 1997, she was one of the young French artists selected by Catherine David to participate in documenta X Kassel, Germany. That same year, the Fonds régional d’art contemporain de Picardie held her first solo exhibition of drawings. While her delicate art is deliberately figurative, the motifs she chooses are not always immediately recognisable. A.-M. Schneider has developed her own way of transcribing the reality she perceives on television, in the newspapers, or in her urban surroundings. Her images are depictions of daily life in its most violent, even hopeless, aspects. In addition to her drawings of beings marked by lives of hardship, toil and insecurity, A.-M. Schneider has consistently created more enigmatic works on subjects born from her imagination, works remote from everyday life or that transform this everyday life into a dreamlike world full of animals, body-objects, and hybrid creatures.

 

Her increasing use of colour – particularly watercolour and gouache – has brought additional complexity to her work and made for a spontaneous shift toward painting, which she has experimented with for several years now. However, drawing still remains her main preoccupation, as she stated in 1995: “My drawing is like a form of everyday writing. It saves me from having to write with words!” In addition to exhibitions at the Galerie Nelson in Paris (2000 and 2007) and at Tracy Williams in New York (2006), her work has also been shown at the Tanya Rumpff Gallery in Haarlem and Elisa Platteau et Cie Gallery in Brussels. She has had solo exhibitions at the musée d’Art moderne de la Ville de Paris in 2003 and 2008 and at the Frac de Picardie in 1997 and 2007. The Museum Het Domein in Sittard, Holland, held a major exhibition of her work in 2009. In France, her works are mainly featured in the collections of the musée national d’Art moderne, musée d’Art moderne de la Ville de Paris, and Frac de Picardie.
