Stephanie Snider’s collages conjure a fictional landscape honed from memory, history and emotion, transporting the viewer into the mysterious caverns of association and introspection. In Snider’s work, gaps in imagery, grids, and architectural structures allow for the unraveling and unwinding of time, emotion and visual reality, providing a psychological theater reminiscent of de Chirico’s Pittura Metafisica. In an artist’s statement Snider refers to her work as ‘Fraught Fictions’, explaining:

“[The drawings] trace sites of personal and collective memories: they map anxiety, confusion, obsessive sorts of love, puzzles, nostalgia and the tricks our minds play on us. The use of narrative is present but not prescribed, yet tonalities of disengagement are articulated, underscoring a dark thread of sadness and melancholy”. [Stephanie Snider]
