“Snowball Spill”,was made in early April 2013, in Hawarden Woods, Flintshire,North Wales at the tailend of a prolonged snowy spring.A heavy fall of snow in March provided more scope to explore ideas linked with combining snow with man made materials. An old corroded oil drum was filled up with snowballs which then consequently burst out from its fragmented sides.I liked the collapsed effect of the contents spilling out with the snowballs piling up in a random manner. The displaced energy of the white snow illuminates the beautifull texture of the drums’ surface and the installation marked the end of a long season of snow art which started in Montana in October 2012.
