AA2A Artist

Sam Swales Snowden

Year:
2018-19
Project summary:

I am a painter whose predominant concern is the female experience, its place in art and in a wider cultural context. My paintings fluctuate in the early stages of their creation between subjective meditations on location and landscape and the mapping of a more internal emotional space. Eventually each piece becomes a pared down composition of colour and space removed entirely from any semblance of representation, describing only its own physicality.

I see the territory of painting as a continually shifting concern. As such the materially of paint as a fluid medium is a constant point of interest to me as my practice continues to develop. It’s mineral relationship to the landscape and potential for unctuous representations of physical flesh provide a rich potential for the ambiguity that I seek within my essentially abstract imagery.
Within AA2A I intend to extend a recent strand of work, making watercolour paintings that employ meandering, umbilical marks combined with a range of unexpected and unconventional mediums. My intention is to use the opportunity to develop this work on a larger scale during my time at the university.
