Kenneth Baker, in the San Francisco Chronicle, says about Jessica Snow's work:
"By the way Snow varies color, materials, dimensions and geometry, she gets us to see every element as gendered. The passages that look like circuitry or constructivist abstraction have a masculine echo; those that suggest stitch-craft or horticulture or procreation make us think ‘feminine’, like it or not. Snow raises the important question: Where do these codes exist? Are they in our minds? What cultural force is it that makes them seem to inhere in certain colors and forms?"
ABOUT THIS WORK
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.
As a viewer, you might first respond to the colour in this work with the rainbow palette, the saturation and cacophony of hues. It is however, worth noting that white has a crucial importance as it structures, defines form and provides light.
This work on paper is part of Snow's Color Stack series where she explores the compression and weight of line via color. It can be acquired in a few clicks on http://www.ideelart.com
