1“Although painting from life means the working method of direct observation,the term has a poetic meaning for me as it has come to describe my subject matter.

I keep circling back to the same imagery I have been attracted to since I was a teenager.

This is the stuff I stumble upon in the course of my daily business.

Such imagery usually contains the germ of narrative as well as pictorial drama that can become the organizing principal of a painting. I paint from direct observation, on location, as well as from my own photographs, which opens up possibilities of working with fleeting sights.”

Artist Jeff Schneider’s take on the West brings in overlapping themes of nature and persona that question both the nature and possibility of unity.

“I consider these paintings randomly narrative. They work by association, making unlikely connections between different types of images, languages and signs. It is my intention to leave the viewer puzzled as to where and how meaning lies between relationships. To question the nature and possibility of unity through representational and abstract concepts.”

Irish Times Art Critic, Aidan Dunne, commented, “Cowboys in saddles, smoking models, posed fruit and drapery are given room and strength to claim their own identity within a single canvas.  In Schneider’s paintings, independent fields of unlikely imagery pulsate.  Foreground and background vibrate off each other, switching roles.  Sophisticatedly staged, the artist utilizes color to create frictional, fictional, interchangeable relationships among the paintings components.  Schneider’s colors separate and engage elements of his paintings in active play for presence, dominance and the favor of the crowd’s eye”.
