Part of Frank Schroeder's work revisits the classic and philosophical themes that have built our Western cultural and artistic identity, while developing a contemporary vision of these subjects. He also works on a very personal and introspective reflection on themes such as "silence", "infinite expectation" and "loneliness". He considers that a painting should not be a simple illustration. Each painting must tell its spectator a story, and must be similar to the mirror of "Alice in Wonderland" which absorbs the spectator and makes him cross the border between the reality and the imagination of the artist. Frank Schroeder wants his painting to place the spectator in front of his nature, his fears and his reality. He also believes that painting is only interesting if it illustrates an intellectual and philosophical reflection, which is necessary for all creative acts.
