Nothing tickles us more than highbrow art mixed with lowbrow humor. Interdisciplinary artist and educator Ariel C. Wilson may create elegant optical sculptures and installations, but she’ll also wax poetic about forgotten fridge items, flying pigs and sweet-talking temperamental printers.
Ariel’s work has been exhibited internationally and in twelve cities across the United States. Her multidisciplinary creations investigate the experience of sight and present the audience with realms of space in which to explore wonder, pleasure, and uncertainty. Ariel’s work challenged us to dig deep into the corners of our art school memories and may have unearthed repressed flashbacks of pre-crit all-nighters. But that’s neither here nor there.
In addition to teaching photography at Marshall University, Ariel also spends part of her time in New Mexico, and we are so thankful she answered our “Dumb Questions” while away from home.
