Sara Schneckloth uses drawing to question how science, imagination, and the body inform one another. The works in this exhibition combine the visual languages of biology and geology into mixed-media drawings. Trekking on ground and hovering by air, Lands Divided unites series that map landforms and their divisions in and around rural New Mexico, while Island Nations evokes the floating Laputa of Gulliver’s Travels. Integrating raw earth pigment with other art materials, the drawings explore physical, symbolic, and philosophical landscapes across geologic and human time.
Schneckloth has shown in over 80 exhibitions throughout the United States, South Africa, France, Norway, and the United Kingdom. She is an associate professor in the School of Visual Art and Design at the University of South Carolina and co-curates the Seed Cultures Archive, a digital project in conversation with the Svalbard Global Seed Vault. She currently lives and works in Columbia, SC, and Regina, NM.
