Hammond Museum Celebrates the Avant-Garde Works of Rosalind Schneider

Through June 16, Hammond Museum presents Transformed Realities, a retrospective of the multi-media paintings from artist and filmmaker Rosalind Schneider. Curated by Bibiana Huang Matheis, the solo exhibition features Schneider’s abstract works, spanning from the early 1970s to present day, which incorporate a range of mediums – from film and painting to drawings and glass collage. Inspired by her natural environment, the contemporary artist captures video frames of diverse landscapes and then rebuilds their structure and color. These video frames serve as the base for her paintings as she, using a glass collage surface, digitally manipulates and reworks the frame with drawing and acrylic techniques. Schneider explains: “I create layered landscape images with multiple realities that progress from real, into abstraction and a fusion of the two.”

Schneider’s dimensional paintings aim to generate a new reality that is both still and moving. The glass-collaged surface creates an illusionary layer that spreads color and captures light. A sense of movement is transmitted from the paintings as the viewer’s position and light source changes. On May 5 at 2pm, in honor of Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month, Schneider will also present China Suite, a series of short videos that she captured in Yunnan Province, China.
