New York -- Artist Ursula Schneider, who uses nylon layers laminated with urethane to paint on, opens a show, The River, at Gallery 1025, Jefferson Street, New York, on 13 Feb.
Eight of Schneider's 4 ft x 8 ft panels showing the Hudson River during different months of the year will be shown. These paintings were created on laminated nylon with water-based pigments and urethane.
Schneider herself developed the unique panel technology, which uses four layers of sheer nylon fabric laminated with urethane, to give a strong, flexible, absorbent as well as translucent base for paintings.
The winter scene here is not typical of Schneider's series Hudson River paintings: it is more naturalistic than many of the series, which consist of bands of colour representing reflections of lights in the water.
