Santa Barbara-based artist Ro Snell has been invited to create a new body of work for Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara’s Fall 2013 iteration of Bloom Projects. All that is left will examine what remains, both physical and abstract, after a process or a period of time. The project considers what is left, not only in the material sense but also in the mind. Using assembled objects, re-contextualized organic forms, and combined printed images, the body of work will be an installation concerning perception, disintegration, emotion, and recollection.
Born in Malvern, England, UK, Snell currently lives and works in Santa Barbara, CA. She received her MFA from George Washington University, Washington, DC, and BFA from Brighton University of Art, England, UK. She has exhibited at The Arts Fund Gallery, Santa Barbara, CA; Atkinson Gallery, Santa Barbara, CA; and Tinsmiths, Ledbury, England, UK.
