Lele (Alegre) Schneider was born in Colombia in 1962.
She lives in Israel and member of Kibbutz Yagur.
Lele has taken part in many exhibitions: "A Green Spot in the City", by artists of the Kibbutz Movement, at Binyanei Ha Homa in Jerusalem, which she was requested to leave a few of her works on permanent display, she is an active participant of many exhibitions that was asked to participate and solo exhibitions. She is working as well as a curator.
In her later paintings Lele establishes a combination of different languages of painting influenced directly by post modern painting which broke the taboo of one language. Dynamic surfaces painted by an expressive brush mixed with flat almost static surfaces. We are still able to observe different elements of nature despite their low volume in the bottom layers. There is a long life to the works and only on second and third exposures can you view and start to understand the parameters of landscape and of abstract human forms.
The works are beautiful but, by no means kitchy or cute. The strategy is to capture the viewer with the beauty but, afterwards you feel the messages the paintings cause you to absorb and awaken the experience of beauty out of reach. And, again you experience the intense inner meaning of the artist.
