Abstract

This work acknowledges that our ways of ‘seeing’ the landscape are conditioned through our knowledge of its historical depictions in painting and that both painting and photography not only portray but also construct ‘the landscape’. These landscape images do not seek to represent traditional rural idylls, instead they depict vistas that are in themselves constructed and man-made so that each scene is interrupted with evidence of urban activity. Series of nine works, entitled, 'The Construction of a Utopian Model' (1998) 80 cm x 100 cm, ‘Forest Entrance (after Jacob Van Ruisdael)’ (2002) 48.5 cm x 55.5 cm, ‘Pool Surrounded by Trees’ (2002) 68.5 cm x 102 cm, ‘The Path’, diptych (2002) each photographic print measures 80 cm x 100 cm, ‘Harbinger' (2002) 80 cm x 100 cm, ‘Fragment of Landscape in Afternoon Sunlight’ diptych (2003) each photographic print measures 68 cm x 102 cm, ‘Riverbank: Closing Landscape’ (2003) 68 cm x 102 cm, ‘View through Trees I & II’ (2003) each photographic print measures 80 cm x 100 cm, colour c.type photographic prints mounted on dibond, edition of three.
