PAINTINGAïda Marini Schneider

“Painting is primarily visual communication. If a piece does not initially pull in and seduce the viewer, any underlying message may be lost. An eclectic mix, each piece is a synthesis of the idea with my experience, background, and aesthetic.”

Using oil sticks and other forms of media, Aïda paints on hard panel and canvas which gives her the freedom of painting “big” which she loves to do.

According to the artist, “Painting is primarily visual communication. If a piece does not initially pull in and seduce the viewer, any underlying message may be lost. An eclectic mix, each piece is a synthesis of the idea with my experience, background, and aesthetic.”

Aïda’s method is to use a direct approach with no sketching. She applies color directly onto the painting surface without a brush or palette. She uses free sweeping strokes and deliberate marks to demonstrate the freedom and sense of well-being that occur when she works.

Aïda feels that no matter the subject matter, art is autobiographical. She states that the allusions and commentary in her work relate to present-day culture and its rapid changes.

The symbols she uses, however, come from her experience growing up in an ancient land. Arabic calligraphy. The earliest alphabets fascinate her and give her a rich iconography or symbolic representation that she uses in her art. The calligraphic marks may be painted over partially or completely, but they are there.
