Anne Schnider’s paintings invites us to go through the looking glass of appearances. There is something else to be seen beyond what you see at first sight. Paintings of the dreams and of the imaginary, Anne Schnider’s work moves freely on the subtle borders of inner world and outer world in between the two worlds of Earth and Water
