Wendi Schneider Featured in “Still in the Studio” at Catherine Couturier Gallery
“It has been a year of more and less. More appreciation, compassion, loss, recognition, reflection, solitude, and work. Less travel, interaction, and concern about unimportant things. Even mundane tasks have developed into more meditative moments. I am acutely aware of the passage of time and of my emotions, which seem to resonate more deeply. And as usual, but perhaps more than ever, I have turned to my art for serenity and respite, as making art to celebrate beauty has always been my personal refuge…” — Wendi Schneider
Wendi contributed a post to Still in the Studio, a weekly series created in response to the pandemic, where artists offer insight into their work and artist practice.

Wendi Schneider Now Represented by Vision Gallery in Jerusalem
“In a recent article published on Artnet, I noted that there is a trend in contemporary photography, a movement that might be called neo-Romanticism, in which artists seek ‘a transcendent union between nature, science & humanity.’ This harmonious fusion of elements is easily discerned in the works of artist Wendi Schneider. Wendi’s work shares an affinity with other Vision artists, most notably Beth Moon and Jennifer Schlesinger and with my own ‘Celestial Nights’ series. . . [Wendi’s] images and prints are unique, I have never seen anything like them. We are privileged to have it at Vision. You are invited to schedule a live or virtual visit to the gallery and see the work in person.”

Wendi Schneider Portfolio Featured in ARTDOC Magazine
“Trees are silent protagonists in the work of Wendi Schneider, which is rooted in the serenity she finds in the sinuous elegance of organic forms. She shares moments of respite in beauty as an antidote to the unease in the world in which we live. “If I can touch someone else with my work, I’m deeply moved and grateful. I hope that viewers will appreciate the beauty and embrace the need to care for our endangered planet.”

Los Angeles Center of Photography
Online Learning Series
Saturday, March 27, 10:00 am – 11:30 am PST
In this webinar, Wendi will discuss her artistic process, which fuses digital techniques with hand-gilding. Schneider’s process is heart-driven by a search for grace and the elusive ‘glow of flow,’ when the awareness of time and space disappear. Using her own work as reference, Wendi will showcase a series of images at several points in the production process to tell the story of an image from capture to completion. Rather than a tutorial on her image-making techniques, Wendi will discuss the path that has led her to her chosen form photography and print-making, and share how she uses her process to find serenity.

Wendi Schneider Featured in Artdoc’s Virtual “Japanese Garden” Exhibition
In hectic times, nature always has a positive effect on the human mind. Nature brings reflection and tranquility. After experiencing nature, we can look at life from a different perspective. In our Japanese Garden exhibition, art photographers show the natural world with their sense of serenity.
Wendi Schneider Interviewed by Denver Women Magazine
“Wendi is widely known for her ongoing series of hand-gilded photographs, States of Grace –– illuminated impressions of grace in the natural world. Drawn to the serenity she finds in the sinuous elegance of organic forms; she embraces photography to preserve vanishing moments of beauty in our vulnerable environment. She has perfected a gilding process in which her images seemingly dance on the paper’s surface amidst reflections of light on precious metals, creating a synthesis of technique and subject.”

Wendi Schneider Featured in The Royal Photographic Society Visual Arts Magazine
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.“

Wendi Schneider featured in Catherine Couturier Gallery’s “Safe in the Studio” Series
“My practice has not shifted measurably in the time of Covid-19. I turn to nature to dwell in serenity amidst the chaos, for it is there I find sanctuary and respite. I am transfixed and transformed when I capture impressions of fleeting grace in the natural world. Calmed by fluid, organic shapes reminiscent of the elegant whiplash lines of art nouveau botanicals, I photograph intuitively.“
