A Gallery For Fine Photography presents ‘States of Grace’ – a collection of twenty-four gilded pigment prints by contemporary artist Wendi Schneider. This work is rooted in the serenity Schneider finds in the sinuous elegance of organic forms.

The exhibition includes a selection of gilded pigment prints from the States of Grace series, including works from Evenings with the Moon and the Patina Collection.
Schneider says “I create illuminated illusions – tender, gilded offerings of fleeting moments of beauty in our vulnerable environment . . . My process creates a surface that shimmers as the viewer’s position and ambient light transition, reflecting the mercurial light at capture. Elevating the ephemeral, I follow instinctively where each image and print takes me, often altering the color, texture or gold, and honoring the variations within the edition. Each of these unique framed prints is a one-of-a-kind object of reverence.”
Wendi Schneider was a Featured Photographer in the 158th Issue of Visual Art, the magazine published by England’s Royal Photographic Society Visual Art Group. Many thanks to the Royal Photographic Society for this wonderful feature.
“I was in New Orleans last year and found ‘A Gallery for Fine Photography’ and it was here, among a fantastic selection of images, that I discovered the work of Denver-based artist Wendi Schneider. Her work literally shone out, by the use of precious metals to gild the reverse of her work, she creates other-worldly representations of the environment around us. I admire the way she has produced a beautiful body of work in a unique and magical way.“
