Death Landscapes

Death_Landscape-No.23-FRAMED-WEB

Five new private commissions and additions to the Death Landscapes III series. Contact me here to discuss creating a bespoke artwork in this series. More information can be found on my online store.

The transitory nature of imagery and material examined through a series of internal landscape collages. Constructed with layers of cut bone white paper, these delicate and miniature relief images are made visible when light casts shadows across the surface. Light plays an important role in defining and demarcating space and in this series light enhances, affects and ultimately completes the work. These tactile yet immaterial landscape explorations invite the viewer to contemplate aspects of form, structure, line and space, whilst also allowing individual projections and inscriptions onto the visual plane, which both welcomes and resist embodiment.

Collage. 125 gsm cartridge paper.

Signed, numbered and dated on reverse side and comes with a certificate of authenticity

Underpinnings: Anna Leonowens Gallery

Shaai/Ink” – a short video that I created with Smriti Mehra will be showing at the Anna Leonowens Gallery in Halifax, Nova Scotia between 21 November – 1 December 2017.

Underpinnings: 130 Years of NSCAD
NSCAD Biennial Alumni Exhibition
Curated by Tori Fleming

Anna Leonowens Gallery, 1891 Granville St, Halifax, Nova Scotia. B3J 3J6

 
This year marks 130 years since Anna Leonowens first opened the Victoria School of Art in 1887. Since then, NSCAD has maintained its reputation as one the most influential art schools under many names, locations and presidents. NSCAD has provided the educational underpinnings for the studio practice of numerous significant Canadian artists, cultural workers, and creative thinkers.

For the 2017 Alumni Biennial, the NSCAD Alumni Association invited former students to reflect on the core values and pedagogy that have created the legacy for which NSCAD is known. Coordinated by NSCAD alumna Tori Fleming, this large, salon-style exhibition includes work by more than 100 alumni artists and designers.
