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."

About The Artist
adventure, romance and fantasy themes.
My “NATURE” series uses graphic techniques to create rough textures,
and rich color for a vibrant experience. Both series combine the same use of
hand-made paper with a raised dimensional format, creating deep dark shadows
which make the imagery jump off the canvas..two different subject matters
with one result…
Artwork that grabs the viewer by the lapels.
