‘My pieces are painted with acrylic paint, oil paint, tempera; I also use airbrushing. I always work with the paint technique used by the great masters: glazing. I make my own paints using hand-crafted recipes which allow me to master the colors I want.
Every painting is worked with its own effects, colors, and techniques, resulting in each painting becoming one of a kind.
Glazing allows for an unequalled transparency of colors; to see the colors superimposed and the effects thus produced is spectacular. I not only make my own paints but my mediums and some varnishes as well. Generally, I work my paintings with the brush, with the knife and with my fingers. Some pictures are worked with resins, others with multiple collages. The end result is structure and effects in relief. I innovate constantly and I am in a perpetual search for new effects and new techniques, all the while staying true to my personality. In many of my paintings, one can find collages of gold leaves, an old technique used in the restoration of masterpieces. In every painting, I combine the modernism of the subjects and the old methods of painting, thus adding to the value because each picture is a new creation.
A painting has to be unique and original to preserve its value. I am passionate about painting and its effects and I try to communicate it in my works. ‘

Quote: ” the art of painting is only the art of expressing the invisible by the visible ” Eugene Fromentin

For how long have been in art? How did you start? When I was child, I always draw and painted, When I was 16 old, I decide that painting will be my life How would you define yourself as an artist? I am an emotional and dreamy artist. When I paint, I need to feel strong emotions and dream

Would you tell us some things about yourself? Please include a few little known facts about you as well. I am an ordinary person who loves to paint, draw, discover, travel, animals. I love loneliness in my studio, the smell of my paintings, the music, my brushes I love the colors of the sunsets and the vanilla colors of the sky when the end of the day arrives I like to see ordinary things in a different way and dream about the unknown

Where do you find inspiration? I have to feel deep things for the inspiration to come I have to dream to paint I must feel the character I’m going to paint Try to discover the strengths and weaknesses because it is this mixture that gives beauty

What are you trying to communicate with your art? Virginie Schroeder sets the scene with lines, geometric shapes and circles to create works where the objects or the subjects are not visible at first. Her art is the result of a reflection and esthetical intuition imposed by the geometry of the shapes. Her art must intrigue, raise questioning and curiosity by the abstract personality of the work. One only needs to concentrate on a focal point, take a gentle step back and contemplate the detailed work. Most of all, Virginie Schroeder wants her art to be so rich of meaning that one must admire it for several minutes in order to understand it. To understand the work, the admirer must emotionally connect with it, contemplate it, open and concentrate all its senses, but more importantly live it. It is not enough to only feel the emotion of the work. What the artist want is the public to enter the piece and connect with its spirit.

The piece is designed to give a new artistic vision and impress the public trough its subtle but breath taking details. When a face, an animal, a landscape where any other theme is literally torn apart, it acquires a whole other shape, identity, dimension, and prestige. We learn how to understand its beauty as we admire it. This is when the magic happens. Our subconscious discovers a piece of art where the abstract is so rich and full of meaning that we can emotionally feel it and relate to it. Virginie Schroeder is looking for vision unstructured, popular, singular, and imaginative. It is her goal to awake our senses in the search for her artwork.
