Sylvia Snowden - M-Street on White
"Few painters have peered so deeply into the human heart, or proved so adept at divulging its secrets." - Alice Thorson, New Art Examiner, October 1988
Edel Assanti is pleased to present the first UK solo exhibition of paintings by acclaimed Washington D.C.-based artist Sylvia Snowden (b. 1942, Raleigh, North Carolina), organised in collaboration with Franklin Parrasch Gallery, New York.
The exhibition features eight large-scale paintings from Snowden’s seminal M Street series, all produced in 1978 and presented here for the first time. In the series, Snowden exposes her subjects’ inner desires, ambitions, vulnerabilities, and fears, bearing witness to their presence and affirming their experience. As the artist notes: “I see things in other people that are reflected in me. My painting is me.”
