Maggie Schmidt is an expressionist. Her painting is one manifestation of the boundless creativity that she expresses. In her painting there is a pure exploration of possibility and the struggle of humanity, an endless dialog with the medium that results in work that is utterly honest and moving. But the work is not one-dimensional; she is also a skilled graphic artist. Her facility as a draftsman adds depth and understanding to her construction of abstraction. She is a master of form with the ability to question and blow-apart form in order to create immediate and timeless work.
