Week 3 — Skip Snow!

This week, I visited with artist Skip Snow at his Highland Park studio. Skip is a super generous and socially engaged artist, whose practice intersects between traditional object making and relational aesthetics. His paintings are modest in scale and meet somewhere between figuration and abstraction: he weaves free form marks, math equations, portraits, and tools in his studio into and out of nebulous, colorful backgrounds. After speaking briefly about his paintings, Skip prepared a dinner for five other artists, his family and I. What ensued was one of the most interesting conversations I’ve had since beginning this project; this is a thoughtful group seriously concerned with institutional critique, the role/place of the gallery in relation to it’s audience, multifaceted performance, and social practice. Be sure to check out Skip’s very interesting project ‘Exchange‘ as well as his Facebook page.
