Wendi Schneider – States of Grace

 

Wendi Schneider’s series ‘States of Grace’ – impressions with silken luminosity of the serenity and simplicity of a graceful, organic line and the stillness of a suspended moment.

“I capture the ephemeral movement of light on organic forms, to preserve that mystical moment that stills time for me. Photographing intuitively – what I feel, as much as what I see – and informed by a background in painting and art history, I portray a personal interpretation by layering the images digitally with color and texture, to find balance between the real and the imagined… White gold, silver or 24k gold leaf is applied behind the image. The leafing process suffuses the intrinsic value of the treasured subjects with the implied spirituality of the gold. The perception of luminosity varies as the viewer’s position and ambient light change.”
