Greta Schnall, born 1964 in Simbach on the Inn in Germany, Bavaria. In 1984 she graduated from high school1989 exam of nursing. In 1989 she moved to Chiemgau, where she later joined the Laufener Kunstverein.In the 2000s, she began digitally rediscovering the photography that she had previously inspired by analogy.From 2006 - 2008 she specialized in natural photography, especially macro-photography, starting in 2008 she began with digital image processing. 2010 began the turnaround to architectural photography. HereShe continued to expand her digital editing methods to this day. In addition to 1st place at the Docma Award trainee in 2013, she was several times finalist at other awards. The latest award is the WAA Women's Art Award, named MUSA International Art Space 2019 in Venice.
She is constantly exhibiting her early works in medical practices and clinics in Chiemgau.In addition to a previous exhibition in Switzerland, Greta Schnall then exhibited solo or in groups in various cities in Germany. The latest group-presentations (May and a 2nd time Aug. - Sept.) took place in Venice at the 2019 Biennale and in London (Sept - Okt. 2019) in the Gallery "The Line". Greta Schnall to her motivations: above all, I want to show how the simple, often depressing architecture on photos can be changed with image editing in an imaginativ and exciting way. So one should come from the functional to the pure fantasy motive, through which one can be inspired variously.About her way of working:my main focus is photography with extreme digital editing processing. This means that I am creating pictures and graphics from architectural, natural and abstract subjects with often surreal components. My favourite themes are front faces of modern buildings or parts of them, which I'm digitally editing and finally changing it into an abstract digital creation.
WHO I AM
I love Cubism and Surrealism and Architecture. In my artworks I try to bring them together.
