The works have been published by Paul Stolper Gallery to coincide with the ‘SNAP’ exhibition at Snape Maltings, part of the Aldeburgh Festival of Music and Arts.The artist proceeds from the sale of ‘SNAP 2012 – THE PORTFOLIO’, will generously benefit the Aldeburgh Festival of Music and the Arts. The exhibition at the Aldeburgh Festival 2013, opening on the 8thof June, will celebrate the centenary of the English composer, conductor, pianist, and founder of the Aldeburgh Festival, Benjamin Britten.
Two artists who now live and work in Suffolk, Abigail Lane and Sarah Lucas, have been instrumental to the initiation of SNAP. Speaking of the project, Lane explains, ‘It has become clear that a lot of interesting artists have rekindled links to this area in the last fewyears – it’s quite extraordinary. The reasons for this are not clear-cut but obviously something is occurring…as a result SNAP was initiated.’ Since SNAP 2011, it has been revealed that many artists working todayshare a connection with East Anglia, either as their home, their place of work or their place of origin.
