Artist Statement

Each of Shane Snider sculpture begins with a wire substructure, which is wrapped into the body with steel wool. The raw sculpture is then thoughtfully worked with multiple cement layers bringing forward to subtle nuances of the female form. The pristine whiteness of the Portland Cement is then hand polished. Much of the steel wool element peeks through – giving a slightly rusted patina in areas on each piece.

A native of upstate New York, Shane Snider relocated to Asheville from Columbus, Ohio where he graduated from the Columbus College of Art and Design. With his BFA in Anatomical Drawing, Shane has morphed his talent for the figure into becoming a master of sculpture using Portland Cement as his medium. The artist lives with his wife and young son working from his studio in Black Mountain, NC.
