Maria Schneider’s “Walking OneCity” in OneCity Permanent Collection

Maria Schneider‘s “Walking OneCity” is now part of the permanent collection of OneCity Residential building. Each one of the 13 panels depicts the connection between some of the most iconic buildings of Philadelphia history. ” Walking OneCity” takes you in a stroll around Philadelphia finding its most iconic buildings, telling the story of what you see and what it may be now forgotten. Each mirrored panel draws the viewer in by including them in its reflection, making their image part of the work.

I spend a lot of time in nature observing plants, the environment, and natures cycles. While in or out of the studio, I'm creating both complex and compact environments that enliven personal residences, gallery walls, and city streets. In work ranging from large scale sculptural installations, and living compilations, to miniature assemblage and mixed media works on paper, nature is my rubric and my compass. This is the way I make connections between human interests and the environment that surrounds us. 

Simultaneously, nature is my metaphor and material. Grafting together a variety of flat and dimensional elements is not uncommon in my practice.
In different ways, I'll incorporate earth, vines, flowers, roots, seeds, pigment, and wax into sculpture, and mixed media works on paper, more akin to assemblage. Nature and plants frequently act as metaphors for our human experience as they are passively or overtly layered or stitched amidst found imagery, maps, photographs, and words.
