Statement

Sara Schneckloth works in a variety of media as a way to explore the potential of contemporary drawing practice. Schneckloth holds an MFA from the University of Wisconsin at Madison, and has lived and worked in Iowa, Chicago, Seattle, San Francisco, and Cape Town, South Africa.  Her drawings have been shown throughout the US, France, and South Africa, and were recently featured in New American Paintings, the 2007 Wisconsin Triennial, and the 2008 Columbus Biennial (GA).  Her essays on drawing theory and practice have appeared in Visual Communication Quarterly, the Journal of Visual Culture, and the Manifest International Drawing Annual.

Drawing on the visual culture of science, Schneckloth creates images that speak to the physical and emotional processes of remembering.  The notion of the gesture factors strongly into her work, figuring as both the mark on the page and as an invitation for viewers to intimately interact with her drawings.

From her artist statement:  "I believe that the act of drawing is a way of residing in multiple states of awareness – of present, past, future – of what one is, has been, and hopes to become – of the physical, the mental, and the formal. I draw as a way to see more deeply, both inside and out, and to elevate the act of seeing to a process that is fully engaging of both body and mind. In the gesture of a drawing, there abides the question of how human beings hold memory. I care about how the body holds its history, and how that recollected history can be performed through the act of making embodied signs."

Schneckloth currently is an Assistant Professor at the University of South Carolina in Columbia, SC.
