Heino Schmid is a Bahamian multi-media artist working in a variety of disciplines that drive his creative process of visual deconstruction and cultural analysis. Working primarily in iterations of charcoal on paper, Schmid’s gestural drawings focus on the nuances of posture, relation, and reduction. As an observer, Schmid pulls from remembered gestures as a primary visual vocabulary. The figures in the work are a compilation of moments, interactions, and idiosyncrasies from those in his immediate space creating a sense of familiarity between the subject and the viewer. Schmid’s three-dimensional and installation works are composed of objects from the landscape and detritus. Once again pulling from his immediate space, the objects that appear and reappear throughout his oeuvre become a visual language that shifts in translation.
