A powerful and popular work by Jeff Snell, showing his mastery of creating pieces that are both raw and elegant, and address issues of our time. This piece is 60"x36", acrylic mediums and printed papers on canvas. This piece was part of Jeff's installation at Jen Tough Gallery in 2017 titled "Our Changing Landscape". 

Jeff Snell grew up in a rural setting outside Baltimore, Maryland surrounded by woods and small streams. He has always maintained a deep connection to the natural world. Even in his most abstract pieces, one can feel a sense of navigating through passages. Living and working for some time now in Northern California, his work often reflects shifts and movements in his surroundings, where change is constant.

Snell creates dynamic compositions with spaces that shift between dimensional space and purely textural surfaces. He has an approach that allows for improvisation and chance discoveries... the act of creation is central to the content of his work. Kinetic energy is tangible and a variety of textures are developed with custom tools and multiple applications of material. “My objective is to maintain a fierce connection with the developing work that is raw as well as elegant.”
