This collage assembles simple items, both found objects and detritus, that the artist transformed with paint and glue. The result is a spontaneous totem that is as much an exploration of moral decay as it is a monument to optimism. Snow's low-tech and playfully innovative approach rescues decrepit and common materials through new characterizations. Her work considers the redemptive power of human ingenuity, suggesting that creative acts are a cause for celebration.
