Shadows and Silhouettes: Valerie Snobeck

Shadows and Silhouettes, 2015

Valerie Snobeck (b. 1980) is an American sculptor who combines found objects with studio-made materials.

Shadows and Silhouettes forms part of a larger body of work by Snobeck, entitled Reservoirs, in which blown glass takes the form of used plastic water containers. We are not told why the containers are in their current state, but their dusty and misshapen forms, often organic in appearance, suggest the overuse of natural resources and the finite nature of potable water.

‘I am interested in the many ways of getting across information. If not through manipulation, then through working between layers of information—visual, spoken, metaphorical.’ – Valerie Snobeck
