Snow Drawings by Sonja Hinrichsen

March 16, 2012

We have shown you snow works before on the site, but these in particular, by Sonja Hinrichsen, are impressive in that the artist uses snowshoes to create these elabroate patterns in the snow. One of the most impressive things about this? There is a ton of patterns and connecting shapes here, meaning Hinrichsen is taken hours upons hours to create and then document the work.

Hinrichsen notes, "Due to its ephemeral nature the duration of each piece is entirely unpredictable. It can last as long as a few days or as short as a couple of hours, being covered by new snowfall or snowdrift shortly after its completion."
