"These digital photographic works demonstrate the expansion of the creative potential of digital image making. The works speak of photography's transition from object to pure information. Through the re-structuring, removing and refining of data I have sought to throw off the shackles of conventional representation. The work is purely formal and self-referential in its intentions; colour is the fundamental ingredient and its vibrancy is maximised by form, to immerse the viewer in colour, rhythm and space, creating a sensory experience of inner contemplation and transcendence."
- Paul Snell 2016

Snell has gained significant recognition for his work across Australia and abroad, having won national awards including Whyalla Contemporary 2015.

His work is included in private and public collections including Artbank, TMAG, Justin House Museum, USA and Germany.

This new body of work Mute explores a softer shadow imprint of colour, the ghosting and shimmer of white light, highlighted by threads of colour reference.
