Painting from the Inside Out with Ryan Schneider
Intermediate to Advanced | Supplies Required
Painting from the Inside Out is a class for the artist interested in exploring what lies beyond the veil of the every day. We will not be learning how to paint “people, places, and things,” but rather focus on our interior landscape, and attempt to capture what is not always seen but sensed, “in the ether” all around us. Students will learn to see with more than just our eyes, and also how the basic building blocks of painting—color, form, and texture, can be utilized to create a spiritual atmosphere in one’s work. Specific pieces on display in the museum will be discussed and serve as jumping-off points, as well as a lecture by the artist about his own painting practice.
Ryan Schneider was born in Indianapolis, IN and holds a BFA from The Maryland Institute College of Art. Recent solo exhibitions include No Filter Eden at V1 Gallery, Copenhagen, Mojave Masks at The Schneider Museum of Art, Ashland, Oregon, You Are Entering at Richard Heller Gallery, Los Angeles, and Mojave Pictures at Taymour Grahne, New York. Recent group exhibitions include Hope and Hazard: A Comedy of Eros curated by Eric Fischl at The Hall Art Foundation in Reading, VT, Brask Meets Willumsen at the JF Willimsens Museum, Denmark, and Natural Selection at The Hole, NYC.
His work is held in public and private collections worldwide, including the Hall Art Foundation and the Bank of America Collection. He has been reviewed or featured in The New Yorker, Art in America, The New York Times, Modern Painters, The Brooklyn Rail, ArtInfo, Artsy, Kunsten.dk, and The Paris Review, among many other publications. After many years in New York City, Schneider now lives and works in Joshua Tree, California.
