Copious

Betsy Schneider (1997-2017)

Artist Reception: Thursday, May 17, 7-9 pm, during Scottsdale’s ArtWalk.

Betsy will be available for questions and conversation.

Artist Statement:

My work has its genesis in my childhood and family roots. Both of my grandfathers were copious family documentarians. From my maternal grandfather I first learned photography and after he died I inherited an old view camera that I used for several bodies of work. My father was a more direct influence, my original photography instructor, a psychotherapist and grief expert, (with specific focus on transformation in loss) he nurtured in me an obsession with observing and marking transitions and perhaps as well strong dose of drama.

The tools and the output of my work vary significantly within photography: snapshot, appropriation, scanner images, medium and large format film, black and white and color, film and video. Always the work concerns itself with photographic mediation and the way in which the photographic image creates, conveys and alters cultural values and relationships, specifically integration of ideas of family, relationships and broader socio-political implications of how we create meaning and structure through photography.

The work in this show is a selection from work from the past 20 years of my career—specifically work related to my children.
