Lila Snow continues her exploration of cultural icons with mixed media construction paintings. She is known for her rich use of color and unusual materials, she has made wall sculptures from paper board supported by wood, covered in hand made Japanese papers and layered with paint - acrylics, oils and powdered pigments. An overlay of calligraphic symbols including Chinese characters, petroglyphs and Hebrew letters adds to the textural variety and thematic complexity of the sculptures. Sometimes tar paper and other materials are used as the artist explores different possibilities. Snow sometimes uses computer parts to evoke the wisdom of the written word over time. Snow has exhibited her works in Washington, New York, Philadelphia, Paris, Bologna and Japan. She is best known for her wit and her interesting combinations of colors and materials.
