Frank Schroeder is an experienced French painter whose works have featured in prominent exhibitions in the US, UK and Spain. Partly revisiting classic religious and philosophical themes with a contemporary outlook, and partly exploring personal and introspective reflections, he composes paintings that burst with colour and tell stories.
His more recent work ‘UNMASKED’ tells intricately woven stories of biblical themes and personal experience blended with psychological and emotional confessions. His modernistic use of line combined with energetic colours and evocative Neo-expressionist style is layered with a uniquely patterned use of numbers and type that capture the gaze and encourage new experiences each time the work is engaged.
Done in a scale typically reserved for historical painting, his work is fast, responsive and instinctive, featuring an array of mixed media, acrylic, pastel and even spray paint. Schroeder’s work has often been compared to that of Picasso and Basquiat by a number of art critics.
Schroeder comments, “For my part, a painting should not be a simple illustration on canvas. Each painting must tell its viewer a story. I want my viewers to experience the 'Alice in Wonderland Syndrome.' I want them to go through the proverbial mirror in order to get to the other side of my painting and live in my work as part of the story.”
