"Looking at the work of Pierre Schmidt is looking at the artist himself. Working headlong through the impulsivities of his psyche and employing titles based on the philosophies of Friedrich Nietzsche and the melancholy underpinnings of Avro Pärt’s Spiegel em Spiegel, Schmidt manages to delicately thread a line from his very being to wherever you might be. Swimming freely in pieces such as Ressentiment I, Ressentiment III, are ethereal filaments and strands, admittedly plucked from the soft tissue of his subconscious, grasping desperately for meaning in a world only partially realized by the creator himself. Prepped and sliced for dissection, we find his suppressions, ruptured and swollen, spilling forth bits of nostalgia, idiosyncrasies, and an ache to gain a higher consciousness." FORTH Magazine
