A young lady sits on the shore, relaxing on a bright summer day. Seagulls fly about as she remains untroubled and thoughtful in her quiet solitude. Artist Rick "Marlowe" Schneider combines dyes, paper, and ink, creating layers and colorful textures in his playful composition. The blue and violet sky complements the golden sun and warm sand. A line of lush trees in the distance provides depth and contrast to the reds in the girl's ensemble.

Rick "Marlowe" Schneider

Leland, North Carolina

Artist Rick "Marlowe" Schneider creates mixed-media collages, combining the use of handmade paper with a raised dimensional technique. "This process produces distinct shadows which make the imagery jump off the canvas," says Rick. His work is a contemporary nod to 1930s and 1940s graphic design. By bringing together bold color combinations and patterns with quirky typefaces, Rick's work embodies the fun and elegant movie posters of Hollywood's Golden Age. Inspiration for his narratives comes from his father who was a pulp fiction writer. His loft studio in Leland, North Carolina, houses his archive of pulp magazines and stories from the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s. "My workspace is cluttered with canvases and handmade paper that I have imported from Thailand. It may be impossible to walk around but the atmosphere is perfect for creating."
