Last Jump (video still) 2011
Steve Snell lives and works in Spartanburg, SC. His work, which includes video, painting, and other media, has its origins in the pursuit of adventure, both as physical experience and as cultural trope. Last Jump cleverly updates The Swimming Pool, a well known work by seminal video artist Bill Viola, by recreating it in a less idyllic setting. Steve received his MFA from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst in 2011. More about his work can be found here.
