The artworks of Gertrud Schneider reveal motives on the borderline between barely recognizable and the whole spectrum of the irrational. Impressions and the versatility of the nature are sources of her working. She succeeds to emphasize the magic of nature by applying overlays of color surfaces that harmonize with each other.
The painting is formed by incorporating the structures of all sorts covering the spectrum from perceived reality mirroring to pure imagination. Various pictorial techniques such as acrylic or oil paints, like vanish or in pasty form are combined with some natural materials.

Her paintings are snapshots on canvas, which direct our gaze to the "energies" contained, within the range of rest and movement. These energies accumulate either as bright colors, almost explosively, or represent the state of harmonious balance.
