Red Snow was originally made as a double-page spread from a magazine published to coincide with the exhibition Spellbound: Art and Film, at the Hayward Gallery, London, in 1996. It was one of a series of cinematic images commissioned for the magazine Sight and Sound. Like much of Taylor-Wood’s work, Red Snow presents a dysfunctional narrative, in which the viewer is impelled to link the two possibly unrelated images.
|Artist Description||Sam Taylor-Wood OBE (born 4 March 1967, London) is an English filmmaker and photographer. Graduating from Goldsmiths College in 1990, she became associated with the Young British Artists group. In a rich body of work from still photographs to short films she has explored themes of mutation and interaction with great sensitivity in images of often ravishing beauty, and has exhibited widely in Europe and the US. In 2009 she made her full-length directorial debut with the film Nowhere Boy, based on the childhood of John Lennon.|

|Technique Pop ups||Also known as silkscreen. In its simplest form, this is a technique by which the artist blocks out a section of a fine, woven screen (formerly made of silk), which is stretched over a frame. With a squeegee, ink is pressed evenly through the screen on to a sheet of paper beneath. Only the areas of the screen not blocked out will be printed. The artist will use as many of these transparent sheets (separations) as the numbers of colours required in the print, and each sheet must be aligned very carefully with the others. The films are transferred on to the silkscreens via a light-sensitive process: only the areas which are painted by the artist will be blocked out and will not allow ink through.|
