Artist Statement / Bio
Spence Snyder is a San Francisco, Bay Area native who currently lives and works in Mill Valley, CA. He received a degree in illustration from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco and a degree in fine art from the University of San Francisco.
Spence is interested in exploring dislocation in a world of intensifying change. As humans continue to manipulate and often unconsciously effect the natural world are we becoming any better at recognizing the repercussions and the limits to which these manipulations can be successful? Our expansion has gone on mostly unchecked and this will have to be addressed as we discover the limits of sustainability and consumption. We are now reliant on science and new technologies to sustain our species. As evolutionary beings, what are the limits of our ability to assimilate the rapid changes in our environment now and in the near future?
