Roni Shneior

Roni Shneior is a painter and ceramist whose works often drip and ooze with the messiness of life. With a nod towards Bay Area Funk of the late 1950s and 60s, Shneior’s sculptures teeter between the absurd, the erotic and the eccentric. Shneior approaches painting in much the same way as she does her ceramic and sculptural work, often building out her surfaces over time to create highly impastoed renderings. Shneior’s paintings articulate a kind of irresolution as if they were continuously in a process of becoming, eternally blooming in the sun-drenched city of Los Angeles.

Shneior received an MFA from the Benzalel Academy of Arts and Design in Tel Aviv in 2010. She currently lives and works in Los Angeles, CA. Her work has been exhibited at Magenta Plains, New York, NY; Ballroom Marfa, Marfa, Texas; 356 Mission, Chin’s Push, JOAN, and Night Gallery in Los Angeles, CA; and Uri and Rami Nechushtan Museum, Gal On Gallery, and Hissin House in Israel, among others.
