Snow explains this series of work as being about “cartooning archetypes of power that I hated, with Mother Nature on my side”. Drawing together a wide variety of reference points – from
consumer culture to Renaissance painting – Snow’s Four (Center Cross) humorously poses as a contemporary St. Sebastian, a stick-riddled martyr of modern decadence. Nailed to a graffitied
crucifix, conveying a medieval jubilee at the display of enemy corpses, Four (Center Cross) is a triumph of loathing and decay, its battered shopping bag and McDonald’s flag denoting a member of the foe camp.
