About this artwork

Like much of Taylor-Wood’s work, ‘Red Snow’ presents a dysfunctional narrative, in which the viewer is encouraged to link two possibly unrelated images. The print was originally made as a double-page spread for a magazine published to coincide with the exhibition ‘Spellbound: Art and Film’, at the Hayward Gallery, London. It was one of a series of images relating to the cinema, which were commissioned for the magazine. This work is from a portfolio of prints by eleven different London-based artists, called ‘Screen’. The title is taken from the screenprint technique but also refers to the fact that most of the artists had worked with film or photography.
