Conversations – Exhibition at Rabley Drawing Centre from 26 September to 29 October
In Conversations, a series of new monotypes, Stephen Snoddy shares Matisse’s lifelong obsession with a visual conversation between inside and outside and often uses the window motif as a formal device to construct work.
Belfast born Snoddy trained as a painter at Belfast College of Art where he graduated with an M.A. in Fine Art. He exhibited at the Royal Ulster Academy last summer; has had a recent solo exhibition, ‘Looking Out’ at the Roberto Polo Gallery, Brussels with a forthcoming exhibition at Southampton City Art Gallery in February, 2017.
Snoddy is also a prominent curator and is currently the Director of The New Art Gallery in Walsall.
