Paul Snell

Artist Profile - - FRONT PAGE - STORY ANNA MADELEINE

Paul Snell’s works are im­me­di­ately at­trac­tive be­cause of their in­tense vi­brancy and lu­mi­nous ma­te­rial qual­i­ties. But beyond this se­duc­tive sur­face, Snell’s work is mul­ti­lay­ered and com­plex in its ap­proach to im­age-mak­ing. By us­ing pho­to­graphic tech­niques to cre­ate ab­stract, non-representational works, he blurs the lines be­tween mak­ing and tak­ing photographs, be­tween paint­ing and pho­tog­ra­phy, and be­tween ob­ject and screen. The works draw from dig­i­tal in­for­ma­tion and code to un­cover the pos­si­bil­i­ties of pho­to­me­dia to go beyond its tra­di­tional form and cre­ate fas­ci­nat­ing self-ref­er­en­tial re­la­tion­ships be­tween the process of cre­at­ing and the ex­pe­ri­ence of view­ing pho­to­graphic images.
