Concerned with recontextualizing myths and placing sequenced images within the contemporary culture, Schneider works in graphite, creating large drawings of figures.

The stories draw from many cultures but are primarily Middle Eastern and European in origin. Currently the political landscape informs the figurative work which is process based and derived from specific issues of the Sunday New York Times.
