'If my paintings should go up in flames, I could re-paint them all from the drawings’. Albrecht Schnider
Each new work starts with the drawing set quickly and spontaneously on paper with the paintbrush, in the fashion of the écriture automatique. The second step, however, is as important as the first: to choose from the numerous sheets of paper, to examine which of the paper works will make a good painting. Here, too, the question can be raised about what is still possible in drawing. For there are drawings which cannot be translated into the medium of painting, as they are too much like paintings themselves.

Thinking of Beat Wismer's analysis of Schnider's drawings, Marc Jancou Contemporary is pleased to present you with the Albrecht Schnider's Fine Lines - Online Exhibition.
This body of work highlights the strength of Albrecht Schnider's drawings, with its suggestive lines, so delicate, yet so strong.
