Brief interview with Ursula Schneider about her approach to abstract painting and her connection and relationship with nature as inspiration.
She taught painting at the San Francisco Art Institute and at Cooper Union. Currently teaches painting at Sarah Lawrence College.
Her artworks include pastel drawings, paintings, small-scale sculptural paintings and woodcuts, working on one medium at a time. These processes complement and enrich each other by stimulating a fresh approach and allowing for experimentation. Drawing from observation in the landscape has been the basis for the work. The focus is on seeing the inherent qualities of the observed and to find the appropriate translation for the medium used.
