Ned Snider: Onward Upward Toward Downward
June 29 - August 4
ONWARD UPWARD TOWARD DOWNWARD
Artist Reception Saturday June 29th from 4-6pm
JUNE 29 – AUGUST 4, 2019
Ned Snider (born 1975, Princeton, New Jersey) is a visual artist working across several disciplines including printmaking, painting, writing, and graphic design. The work operates at the intersection of conceptual art, graphic art, and abstraction.
Ned received his BFA in Graphic Design from the Maryland Institute, College of Art in Baltimore, Maryland, and his MFA in 2D Design from the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. He works and lives in New York with his wife, Marina and daughter, Simone.
People are perpetually seeking resolution to ongoing conflicts within their lives. A ceaseless push and pull; a generally fruitless search for answers to quelling these conflicts definitively.
There are no answers to be found here. Only a collective, metaphorical mirror being hoisted upon these walls.
I’d like to imagine the work being interpreted as a way to find solace through commiseration. While the majority of us may not subscribe to the notion of “beating them”, we invariably “join them” simply as a means of perseverance.
Resignation as an attempt at resolution.
