Artist of the Collection

Valerie Snobeck

Born in 1980 at Wadena, États-Unis

Drawing on political, economic, and aesthetic concerns, Valerie Snobeck's work functions through the accumulation, layering, and fusion of natural and artificial materials. To deal with environmental or social issues, her works combine elements from different environments and eras, such as plastic, tar, burlap, denim, glassware, old images, and inkjet prints. In her work, which ranges from photography and sculpture to video, her complex and multifaceted process is as important as the finished product.

Valerie Snobeck was born in 1980 in Wadena, and lives and works in New York. She received her BFA from Cloud State University in St. Cloud and her MFA from the University of Chicago.
