IMG_3446

I am very excited to have one of my collages from Death Landscapes III featured in Bonk! Magazine #3.2 – The Lines issue. Bonk! Magazine is an experimental print publication that showcases the work of writers and artists. It is also an exploration of the possibilities of print and design as mediums. They publish text, images, and design loosely organised around a single theme. This magazine, along with previous issues can be purchased via their website.

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

13.8 x 18.3 cm

Death Landscapes III

The transitory nature of imagery and material examined through a series of eighteen internal landscape collages. Constructed with layers of cut plain paper, the 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 immaterial landscapes invite the viewer to contemplate aspects of form, structure, line and space in relative visual silence, whilst also allowing individual projections and inscriptions onto the visual plane.

Death Landscapes II

Miniature collages of monuments and structures that resemble industrial factories, crematoriums, cenotaphs, mountain caves, guard towers, signposts and gateways.

The entrance belies the paradise within.
