Artist Rick "Marlowe" Schneider depicts a rich and captivating tropical mixed media in bold vivid colorful layers. The image welcomes the viewer to a tropical vista seen through thick banana leaves. A vibrant red parrot eyes the viewer while more birds fly beyond in a pink and purple sky. Rick utilizes full-bodied, handmade paper allowing him to achieve highly saturated pieces with interesting textures. Mounting the main image of the parrot and the foliage creates a natural cast shadow, it adds depth to the image depending on how light hits the surface.

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."
