In Nebula photographs of clouds over south east London are transferred onto the wall and hang below lithographs of solid matt colours.  The images reference Constable’s romantic cloud studies, while questioning what looking at the sky means in the 21st century: with airplanes that menace, and changing environments, the sky is a place of fear rather than contemplation. The colours appeal to a nostalgic longing for a time when the clouds meant sublime melancholy. The piece plays with ideas of permanence and impermanence, as the wall images deteriorate and change with the light, while the lithographs remain static. The lithographs represent the essence of the light reflected in each of the clouds.
