Maia Snow

Sorry Bout the Egg | 2018 | Oil on Canvas | 48” x 48”

Maia Snow was born in Perm, Russia. They were adopted by an American family at the age of 13. They received their BFA from Maine College of Art in 2013. They currently live in Austin, Texas where they are an MFA Candidate for 2020 at the University of Texas. Their work celebrates the soft and hard complexities of queer sexuality, gender, and the non-binary body. The central subject of their current work is the figure, which gestures toward the body as an entity that is both marked by sex and a marker of sex. They are interested in the question of the witness, and the relationship between the individual (personal) and the communal (political/historical). Their work also investigates the nature of body memory—specifically, how our physical and emotional selves carry trauma, pleasure, and desire and the ways that these three kinds of corporeal experiences/histories are inextricably linked to one another.
