For his second exhibition at Gallery 9, Paul Snell continues his examination of the possibilities of abstraction and minimalism in photo-media. Snell describes this new work as purely formal and self-referential in its intentions:
These pieces are not representations of certain realities; they are their own reality and involve furthering the concepts of reduction (of form, space, line and material) and the effect of colour as visual signature. By developing these concepts, I am inviting the viewer into the space for a contemplative experience with the work. My aim is to create a phenomenological experience of each location that potentially overwhelms or transcends its physicality.
