"Lawrence Schneider’s sculptures demonstrate both an awe-inspiring mastery of engineering and a mood-instilling sense of poetry. They are works that both impress with the physical richness of their materials of manufacture and invitingly distract through exaggerated manipulations of light and shadow.“
- James A. Abbott
Director The Johns Hopkins Evergreen Museum and Library
“Inspired by positive themes such as Hope and Harmony and a passion for his subjects Lawrence Schneider creates sculpture that leaps off the three-dimensional plane with resounding exuberance. The rhythmic undulating lines in his art soar through space into infinity, entertaining and teasing the eyes of the enchanted viewer. Formerly an aeronautical engineer as well as being a private pilot Schneider incorporates a profound understanding of spatial dimensions.
Unlike Leonardo da Vinci, a true "Renaissance" man, his aptitude for both science and art grant him an innovative perspective on his work. His imagination knows no boundaries: He can execute an idea for a three dimensional work of art with unerring technical prowess.”

Reflections on the sculpture: Mother & Child.
To give the fleeting moment permanence,
To explain the inexplicable,
To assign to feelings form and shape
Is the artist’s task and goal.
As once the Mother’s womb sheltered the child,
Her love now envelops it.
And just as all Madonnas in the world
Depict the one,
The sculptor carves and curves the pliant wood
Into eternal Mother’s love.
- Sibylle Ehrlich
"I felt moved by Mother & Child when I first saw the work In Larry’s home. The wood moves and flows, while it is perfectly still. The form is elegant, simple and beautiful. The economy of expression is poetry in motion."
