Craig Schneider will explore the distance between sculptural bodies during his virtual residency with the Fredericton Arts Alliance August 9-15.

As with all FAA summer residencies in 2020, Schneider will be working in his home studio sharing updates along the way.

“I have just started to explore a series where amorphous bodies are in distant relationships to each other, where gestural line is reduced to speak of emotion, alienation and belonging,” said Schneider.

Schneider will be in dialogue with his audience, by incorporating “key words” taken from viewers into the surface of the ceramic pieces.

“The sense of ‘who am I, where am I, how am I’ in these amorphous human shapes and the relationship in space/time created within the work will relate very nicely with the COVID 19 experience,” he said.

Schneider will film and photograph his process and upload images to the Fredericton Arts Alliance’s social media pages. Interested art fans should follow the Fredericton Arts Alliance Facebook page@FrederictonArts on Twitter, and @fredartsalliance on Instagram.

Look forward to even more media being explored throughout the summer, including music, critical writing, mask making, painting, and textile art. Previous residents have done collage, zines, felting and fibre art.
