Within Snow’s work is the intrinsic value of creative methodology and material negotiation, the infusion of her idiosyncratic interpretation and belief into the structures she assembles. The making of Snow’s sculptures is an intensely physical process, and for this series of work she created each piece in the gallery where it was originally exhibited, inhabiting the space for the duration of the show. This performative dimension of her work is evidenced in the finished pieces, such as Five (Cross On The Left With Spider Web), which expose her modes of assemblage, spontaneous decision making, and playful innovation, transforming simple objects
such as used clothing and twigs into totems of artistic creation and fictionalised degeneracy.
