MICHAEL SNOW "PSYCHEDELIC CELLULOID TORSO", 1972
Michael Snow (b. 1929) is one of the most remarkable multi-disciplinary Canadian artists.
Snow is renowned for a diverse body of work including experimental films, jazz recordings, the "Walking Woman" series and large scale public art.
Perhaps one of the most interesting characteristics of Snow's output is his ability to alternate between creating work that is populist and work that is avant-garde and esoteric.
This work, "Psychedelic Celluloid Torso" seems to be a hybrid of two of best known areas of creation; film and and "Walking Woman".
While Snow has created a number of different multiples over the course of his illustrious career, "Psychedelic" is certainly one of the most colorful, impactful and simply fun works from his oeuvre.
You might notice that Snow signed and dated each of the four corners of this work. It was his intention that the work could be hung in any orientation; either vertically which best demonstrates the silhouette of a torso, or horizontally.
