During January 2013 I travelled between Yorkshire and Wales and was bombarded with snow for 3 weeks, disturbing travel arrangements and even closing my place of work. This series of paper-based works is a reflection on the restricted colours experienced and hues engulfing the land.
I used snow directly on to the paper by piling it high then painted on top of the snow, allowing the snow to melt and alter the original application of the marks. As the snow returns to its original form, water, it either increases the movement of water-based art materials or exacerbates the repulsion of oil-based products. Ultimately, the excessive water transports these materials in an intriguing way around the paper, mimicking nature.
