Bio

Ryan Schneider currently lives and works in Joshua Tree, California. Living and working in the middle of a vast dessert changed Schneider’s life experience, perspective and output. Ryan Schneider has no moral upper hand in this confident and alluring body of work. We see him in the paintings and on the painted screens. It is him and his friends and you and me. Reflected in reflections of contemporary life. And this is Schneider’s interest – strong contemporary painting - engaged in the mundane and the extraordinary. His works partakes in an ancient human tradition of depicting the human condition as experienced first-hand. From the caves in France and into the Californian desert we are connected as humans by painting. No Filter Eden harness a raw ancient energy. A rare painterly feat. A joy to experience.
