Fly Away Little Bird by Ben Snowden
My work explores the relationships and ideas between subject and emotion, combining visceral energy with experience through painting. Inspired by the natural world, poetry and memory, I use the language of abstraction to create work that emphasises on mood and expression to determine the overall feeling of the paintings. I predominantly work with enamel, spray paint, graphite and household paints on materials such as paper, board, card, textiles and wood that I find in everyday life. My main focus is to create work that evokes the senses and ultimately communicates a positive and constructive view of the world.
Feeling free to live your life high above the world, forever chasing the sun.
