Her focus is on drawing, but she has worked with other media, including conceptual video, in which she "drew" linelessly with her body. I had the pleasure of talking with Ariel at the WTAC opening of her show. Born in Memphis, and raised around Oxford Mississippi, both hotbeds for Southern American artists, she still retains gallery representation in Memphis and locally at Tempus Projects.
From memory, I believe the tile of this is "Fishing". This large work (although Ariel tells me normally her work has been much larger) with its palm frond-forms along the edges, and tiles in the foreground that become increasingly unstable and disintegrate and shatter towards the center, is quite strong. And what lies at the center?
This show can be seen at the WTAC, at 1906 N. Armenia Ave. until March 18th. Treat yourself.
