Stefanie Schneider: A German View of the American West Stefanie Schneider's artistic trajectory defies geographical expectations, as a German lens captures the essence of the American West. Her works channel the spirit of American luminaries like Ed Ruscha, Georgia O'Keeffe, and Edward Hopper, amalgamating their influences into a fresh narrative. In Schneider's lens, the vibrancy of Ruscha's fascination with the American experience finds kinship with O'Keeffe's desert landscapes, while the emotional resonance akin to Hopper's haunting works infuses her imagery. Her ability to juxtapose desolation and vibrancy, isolation and connection, weaves a narrative tapestry that resonates with the American psyche. The transformation of Schneider into a crucial figure within the American narrative of the 20th and 21st centuries is a testament to the universal language of art. Her works bridge cultures, transcending boundaries and offering a profound reflection on the multifaceted essence of human experience. Schneider's Medium and Unique Process Integral to Schneider's artistic journey is her distinct medium and process. Utilizing expired Polaroid instant film, she transforms imperfections into visual poetry. The unique character of this film, with its unpredictability and inherent flaws, contributes to the distinct aesthetic of her photographs. This choice imbues her works with a vintage allure, inviting viewers to connect with a bygone era while engaging with contemporary themes.

Stefanie Schneider lives and works in the High Desert of California. Stefanie Schneider's scintillating situations take place in the American West. Situated on the verge of an elusive super-reality, her photographic sequences provide the ambience for loosely woven story lines and a cast of phantasmic characters. Schneider works with chemical mutations of expired Polaroid film stock. Chemical explosions of color spreading across the surfaces undermine the photograph's commitment to reality and induce her characters into trance-like dream-scapes. Like flickering sequences of old road movies Schneider's images seem to evaporate before conclusions can be made - their ephemeral reality manifesting in subtle gestures and mysterious motives. Schneider's images refuse to succumb to reality, they keep alive the confusions of dream, desire, fact, and fiction. She is currently working on the 29 PALMS, CA. 29 PALMS, CA is a feature film / art piece that explores and chronicles the dreams and fantasies of a group of individuals who live in a trailer community in the Californian desert. A defining feature of the film is the use of still images and the use of voice over. Characters talk to us / themselves / you about their ambitions, memories, hopes, fears and dreams. The film is to be shot using a mix of super 8 and 16mm film stock and Polaroid images. Certain computer-generated effects will also be used to enhance the films surreal mood and to animate its dark humor. Radha Mitchell, Marc Forster, Udo Kier, Max Sharam among others are participating in the project. Stefanie Schneider received her MFA in Communication Design at the Folkwang Schule Essen, Germany. Her work has been shown at the Museum for Photography, Braunschweig, Museum für Kommunikation, Berlin, the Institut für Neue Medien, Frankfurt, the Nassauischer Kunstverein, Wiesbaden, Kunstverein Bielefeld, Museum für Moderne Kunst Passau, Les Rencontres d'Arles.
