Ariella Gibson (b. 1990) is an American artist and photographer. In 2013 she received her BFA with a concentration in Photography and minor in Art History from Memphis College of Art. Her work has been exhibited internationally and she is currently based out of Memphis, Tennessee. She is now in Hartford Art School’s MFA Photography program for the class of 2017.
In Gibson’s series, she attempts to understand the complexity of human pleasure. Through the examination of the deeply personal she works to comment on the universal. By making herself and her subject vulnerable she speaks to the contradictory nature of pleasure. Sometimes, the most pleasurable things in life are not what you’d think they’d be.
