Last Supper Christ
Last Supper Christ

"Remember Me when you eat and drink" This was one of the key events in Christ's earthly journey.  His last time of peace and brotherhood with his Disciples before he was taken away to his death.  This is my Blood you drink ...this is my Body...  Remember me when you eat and drink" This bronze sits on a handmade oak base studded with hand forged iron spikes.    Although a powerful piece in any setting would be particularly good in a cooking or eating area.

Christ

Father into Your hands I commit my Spirit. The crucifixion of Christ and his taking of all of man's sin and resurrection is the most import event ever. Any artistic ability I have is a blessing. On Easter of 2018 I threw myself into the abyss artistically. The first face I would ever do would be Christs. When this face in clay was looking back at me at the end of the day I knew once again Christ had changed the course of my life.

John the Baptist-Behold the Lamb of God! John the Baptist a man of true Conviction.  While many wanted to declare him the Messiah, he denied proclaiming, there is one much greater than I.  When he saw Christ at the river Jordan where he was baptizing he declared "Behold the Lamb of God!  A man of deep unshakable conviction.

Noah
Noah

Following the word of God Noah spent a 100 years Building the Ark. The animals came two by two, the floodgates of heaven broke open and this colossal ark was tossed about on the waters for 40 days. A dove was sent out and eventually came back with the olive branch and sign of land. The gesture of Noah towards land, the anticipation of the young doe looking towards her new home and hope.

Peter - The Fisher of Men
Peter - The Fisher of Men

Peter the strong, calloused, sun beaten, big hearted Fisherman. When meeting Christ for the first time and leaving his nets and boat behind to become "The Fisher of Men" I wanted to show his softening heart at one of the moments that truly changed the world.

Ted Schnack Biblical Bronze Art Bio

face page.jpg

The far corners of the earth and the miracles God surrounds us with has been Ted’s artistic classroom. Ted, in the classic sense, is a self-taught artist, and says, “My lifelong love and deep engagement with art, seeing the titans of art, and mentally and spiritually engaging in their language and love of art, has been my biggest inspiration.  I find it fascinating that the real masters of art always seem to find the most deeply moving art in Biblical or God themes. There is something extra there, and I feel it is divinely inspired. God wants to show Himself through art.  I feel that presence when my hands are moving across a piece, that something extra is guiding my fingers and tools, and that hint of an idea soon becomes a humming highway.  I work really hard at my art but the credit goes to God for any ability or talent.”


Ted has backpacked through the Holy lands, Europe, Rome, Florence, Greece, Jerusalem, Paris,  studying and throwing himself into the greatest art ever created by man. Ted has never had formal art training, but considers the art masters of Michelangelo, Rodin, Leonardo, Bordulle, and countless unnamed artists as his teachers and mentors. “You connect with the art and artists, listening to their voices as they ring through the centuries, becoming intimate with the art, understanding what they are trying to accomplish, and letting those millions of voices become your own voice,” he says.


Although Ted writes, paints, works in gold, and silver, he is focused in the power of bronze.  “I’m drawn to the power of it, it’s three dimensions, it’s presence and that you can touch it and it lasts forever.”  He uses a semi-loose style that becomes more poetic in expression and gesture. “In an abstract concept you are literally manipulating bronze with your finger tips and tools,” Ted explains.      
Ted was recently featured in the prestigious Sporting Classics magazine where the long time Editor-in-Chief Ryan Stalvey said.  “In my position I see a lot of art.  Considering the quality of Ted’s work given that he is self-taught, and now the powerful Biblical pieces, is nothing short of astonishing. "I’m a personal collector of his work.”


Ted’s pieces are collected worldwide, he has won numerous Best of Show awards, and is raising important eyebrows within the art world.  His Biblical pieces hearken back to the classics, but with a bold, strong, and clear artistic statement of his own.
