Sylvia Snowden: Painting Humanity

Sylvia Snowden: Painting Humanity is the first public gallery exhibition of her work spanning six decades. This exhibition includes large early paintings through to more recent works.

Snowden works with oil paint and pastels as well as acrylic and collage to create her expressionist, distorted, monumental figures, capturing the psychological essence of her subjects – their triumphs, torments, joys and pains – in thick impasto, the technique where paint is laid on an area of the surface thickly.

Hepworth Wakefield, Yorkshire until 3rd November ‘24. £13 / £11 / FREE for Members, Wakefield District residents and under 18s.
