Carrie Schneider

Having a sense of humor is crucial to being an artist. Carrie Schneider appears unafraid of absurdity, flirting with comical undertones in her visually jarring creations– so she’s already a step ahead of so many self-serious peers. There’s always something off in her lovely photographs, an unexpected juxtaposition often provided by a strange sculptural element Schneider has dragged into the image, or an alarming pose. For instance, check out her portraits of artists in their studios… where they all seem to have unexpectedly passed out on their paint-splattered floors. Okay, weird! But fun!
