Casper’s Forest (2013) at WC-A Contemporary Photography Open at Worcester CIty Gallery and Museum
Transfer collage on Japanese Shozo paper, found book, shelf
Here the found book completes the piece and places it on an imagined continuum with history. The edges of the pages play with the viewer’s sense of space and reinforce the juxtaposition of the book and the flat print, by bringing a sculptural element into the interplay between the tree trunk on both sides of the installation. Referencing Casper David Friedrich’s paintings of forests, here the sublime is inverted- the images are of a dying forest, a desolate landscape.
