Since the early 1990's, Anne-Marie Schneider has developed her unique style which goes almost against common trends. Drawing is essential for her as it enables her to comment on the hazards of her daily life. But this process, close to that of a diary, is sublimated in her art. All the emotions and sensations are subjected to the work of the unconscious. The real world becomes the emanation a circumstanced -and almost dreamlike- relationship with the heaviness of the world?s hazards. Her drawings often bear more direct political meaning. In this respect, Anne-Marie Schneider subsequently applied herself to deciphering the bad habits of our culture. The dream therefore turns into a nightmare and confirms how difficult it is to be faced with the diktats of economic or political authorities.

Her work was presented in Documenta X in Kassel (1993), followed by solo presentations in 2003 and 2008 at the Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, at the Museum Het Domein, Sittard, BE (2009), and recently at the Musée Reina Sofia, Madrid (2013). Schneider's work is included in the following collections: Musée d'art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, Centre Pompidou in Paris, Musée des Arts Contemporains - Site du Grand-Hornu in Belgium, Museum Het Domein in Sittard, Belgium, and Yale University Art Gallery in US.

Schneider first gained international repute primarily for her endearing, pared-down drawings that have the immediacy of strip cartoons. Schneider?s work is at once tragic and absurd, lending it a profound psychological impact. Her intimate, articulate drawings read like diary entries. In Schneider?s work, the personal and the political go hand in hand. The drawings comment on everyday experiences, literature, political events and media images. Her rapid sketches testify to a fascination with commonplace situations. With a gentle mockery, she challenges conventions and expectations, and by doing so creates space for the imagination and for the a-typical individual. A selection of her drawings was presented in Documenta X in Kassel (1993), followed by solo presentations in 2003 and 2008 at the Musée d?Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris.
