Veiled Compositions: August 2017-June 2018

August 2017-June 2018

Stair Tower

This series of paintings by Anika Schneider ’15 began with her interest in the media, both how the media presents news stories and how we consume and process these stories. Schneider began to collect and take different pieces of these news images and compile them into the same composition, creating collage compositions from events around the world that were happening concurrently. Schneider creates these compositions in thick textured layers in juxtaposition with thin drippy layers.

More information on Schneider's experiences during her time at Gettysburg College as an Environmental Studies and Studio Art double major and her full portfolio of paintings can be found on her portfolio website and her Facebook page.
