Leaf Patterns -  The National Quilt Museum  •   Paducah, Kentucky
May 25, 2018 - July 24, 2018


A solo exhibition of pieces from Barbara Schneider's Leaf Patterns series.

The Japanese concept of Wabi-Sabi, finding beauty in things that are imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete is at the core of all of my art work. I like to capture the essence of images made of light and movement, images that are infinitely variable. Images that connote the beauty that comes with age or disintegration. I think about the following concepts as I work: What does the eye see? What does the camera see? What does the mind see?

Leaf Patterns is an exploration and interpretation of leaves, pods, and tree bark by enlarging and shaping them until they become sculptural objects. I collect them at the end of summer when they begin to wither, twist, fragment and disintegrate. The textured and shaped surfaces combine with light and shadow to enrich the overall perception of the final artwork.
