Systems of Reception

James Schneider's avatar James Schneider

Having my studies in the Classical styles of Painting and Drawing formalized through studies at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, my focus has always been to really understand that which I find beautiful, searching in that place between the exquisite and the confounding. Placing the viewer in a sublime constructionism my Chicago based work redefines the urban landscape and seeks to answer the question of place; with who, what, when, where and how one exists within a contemporary society. While the road to self discovery is private and personal, it is interpreted uniquely with everyone.
