Signed on Front and Verso
Lily Snowden-Fine is a British/Canadian painter currently based between London and Vancouver. Her work is inspired by faces and hands, and the subtle emotions that can be given away by intricate poses. She draws from her love of antiques, found imagery and family photographs, while using playful colours inspired by the joy and warmth of 20th century painting. Her use of colour, brush strokes, and subtle poses communicate to the viewer an image of nostalgia for a fleeting moment; mundane memories inflated into cherished imagery after life has moved far enough away for them to feel like a relic of a past life.

Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
The four portraits began as quick pastel studies, gathering the essence of each person in broad strokes. The original reference was then removed, using only the intuitive studies as a guide, in an attempt to diminish the pressure of detailed accuracy and use memory as a guiding force.
