Paul Snell

13 MAR - 9 MAY
Cathleen Edkins Gallery

The pause, the gap and the omission are increasingly significant in our saturated image driven society.

Through Snell’s work the daily saturation is replaced by selective sensitisation, his pieces continuing an exploration of non-representative forms and examining the possibilities of abstraction and minimalism in photo-media.

His work investigates the transformation of photographic modes of production and the manipulation and exploitation of data to invent new visual forms. By rhythmically repeating, pairing, overlapping, reversing and sequencing through the investigations of specific colour relationships, Snell seeks a sensory understanding of the physical object. These pieces are not representations of certain realities; they are their own reality.
