Artist Statement
Jason Schneider is a studio furniture maker who works with traditional woodworking processes in non-traditional materials to create unique three-dimensional objects. His work reveals the inherent beauty and character of corrugated cardboard in both functional and sculptural forms. The study of the fine use and function of this low-status, recyclable, and often overlooked material drives his curiosity.

The artwork presented here is from a new series, titled COLOR follows FORM follows TEXTURE. As noted by the artist, "The corrugated textured sculptures I create are intended to provide the viewer with a distinct experience of light and shadow that changes in appearance depending on the directional cut of the material itself. Color is also used to add contrast to the paper and alter the visual weight to each form."
