Albrecht Schnider (1958, Luzern) is one of the most idiosyncratic painters at work. This is due not so much to his subjects, which comprise the traditional genres of art history such as landscape, figurative painting and still life as well as abstract works. It is more on account of the individual and highly distinctive attitude and direction he follows in terms of both form and content. Albrecht Schnider’s precise abstract paintings take as their source the delicate explorations of shifting planes and geometric forms found in the artist’s drawings.
Albrecht Schnider (1858, Luzern, Switzerland) had exhibitions at Kunstmuseum Luzern (2016), Kunsthalle Bern (2016), Helmhaus Zürich (2014), Kunsthalle Bremen (2012), Kunstmuseum Solothurn (2011), Haus am Waldsee, Berlin (2011), Kunsthalle zu Kiel (2011), Museum Wiesbaden (2011), among others. His work is included in numerous public collections, including those of the Kunsthaus Zürich, the Kunstmuseum Bern, the Kunstmuseum Luzern, the Musée Cantonal des Beaux-Arts, Lausanne, the Kupferstichkabinett Berlin, Schering Stiftung, Berlin, and Swarovski, Wattens, Austria. He is represented by Bob van Orsow in Zurich, Thomas Schulte in Berlin, Marc Jancou Contemporary in New York and AKINCI in Amsterdam. In 1994 he was awarded the Manor Kunstpreis. Schnider holds professorship at the Hochschule der Künste in Bern. He lives and works in Berlin and Switzerland.
