As a multidisciplinary artist, Snow uses different mediums and supports. Each work results from preliminary studies drawn with pen or pencil and which sometimes can amount to 20 sketches.
Snow sees her work as a constant play between order and chaos, logic and emotion. She combines playful shapes with bright colour, organic gestural lines, geometric and linear forms.
Aesthetically, she wants the painting to look as if it “just happened” and paints in such a way that the brushstrokes disappear and the layers become imperceptible. She has a strong inclination to create something which looks instinctive and effortless.
For this work, the paper is first painted with titanium white matte acrylic for maximum brightness— it is both a flat material support and also a light-filled space.
The shapes sit in this empty ambient space, and around each of them a tautness or a tension is created, as if a magnetic pull were holding them in place.
