We perceive Nachbilder with closed eyes, as memories, when the original light stimulus of the concrete pre-image has already faded away. It is similar with the works of Jochen Schneider – what we have seen resonates and provides the impetus for his drawings and then for images within us that now tell their own, new story – without providing final answers.

Jochen Schneider dedicates his artistic work to the exploration and graphic appropriation of the immediate everyday world. Sensual experiences and observations provide the impulse – things, structures and textures, experiences and feelings. Jochen Schneider’s works always arise from memories. Memories are difficult to grasp and have no material form, but they are not without objects either. If they take on a visual form, they become something else. The underlying images, situations and objects are dissolved into complete abstraction. The draftsman reduces, connects, arranges and reinvents. The sheets, always laid out in graphite, form themselves from transparent planes of lines, hatchings, and condensed surfaces, from which amorphous or almost geometric volumes emerge and transform into pictorial form. As signs, they stand in relation to one another and refer to things that recall the familiar. In the conundrum between formal assertion and graphic dissolution of the pictorial motifs, sheets of the highest sensitivity emerge.
