Landscape Series II

Research output: Other contribution

Abstract

Nature is the subject of this series, but in a landscape that has been constructed. These works expand upon a series of photographs that explore the art historical depiction of landscape within parks and gardens, often a setting of the picturesque. These images also form part of an ongoing series, which explore compositional devices. In these works, roof tops are just seen at the bottom of the picture plane. In 'Ridge' (2008), the roof tops visually interrupt an expanse of foliage, which forms a dense wall of trees in the background of the image, so that there is no recessive space. The negation of recessive space is a compositional device that has been investigated in other works such as, 'Dead Pool' (2008) and 'A Complex Variety of Greens (from Emerald to Viridian) (2011). Works from this series were produced as part of AHRC funded research project, 'Reconsidering Landscape in Contemporary Photography', 2008 - 2009. Details: 'Ridge' (2008) diptych, 'Over, and On and Up' (2011) diptych, colour lightjet photographic prints each measuring 122 cm x 152 cm. Edition of three.
