Bees Behaving on Blue is a colour photograph of dead bees arranged in a circle on a blue ground.  Snow found the collection of dead bees in his cabin in Newfoundland when he returned in the spring and created the arrangement reminiscent of a funeral wreath.

Snow sees his work as a sculptor, filmmaker, musician, photographer and painter as fundamentally inter-related art practices. His is a totally unique vision based on an inherent sense of investigation and play.

Snow has earned numerous national and international accomplishments, including a Governor General’s Award in Visual and Media Arts in 2000. He lives and works in Toronto.
