Gelato in Hand
May 5th – June 4th, 2016
Ariel Sniegowski was born in Hong Kong and experienced a childhood referencing Japanese, Chinese, and American cultures. Even before being capable of writing her name, she took an interest in conveying visuals into languages by commissioning drawings from her mother. Ariel continued to study the arts privately and in classes in California, Utah, and Kentucky. In 2010, she attended the Governor’s School for the Arts, and in 2011, she placed 1st in painting at KyAEA All State. Most recently, she completed an extensive Grand Tour of Europe (Rome, Paris etc.) as well as the Persian Gulf (Abu Dhabi). Informed by travels, her latest expo offers a unique take on the classical tradition, where the tradition itself is as much our export onto the ancients as it is our inheritance:
In Rome, my compass for deciphering mimicry wavered. Hustled off the train, en masse with tourists, I found it hard to differentiate American replicas from its older counterparts. Those stones looked too recent, those buildings too bubble-like. Was this an amusement park that I had been shuttled to? Gelato in hand, I wondered how to differentiate between copy and original in a museum without labels. I looked over: overzealous tourists shoving viewers out of the way for a chance to get a selfie with a highly tagged original.
