About

Acrylic on paper. Unframed. 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. This work is titled after the recent detection of a ripple in spacetime, predicted by Einstein 100 years ago. Jessica Snow is an American abstract artist whose paintings and drawings are distinguished by colourful and playful geometrics. A desire to make each new painting better than the last one continuously inspires the artist to make a painting that rests lightly in the world, a surface filled with metaphorical light, air, color, uplift and freedom. She lives and works in San Francisco. “The colors and shapes of my work should hopefully make that person feel more at home in this world. If the painting succeeds in doing that, then I have accomplished something quite wonderful indeed”.
