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.
These are test pieces following on from an earlier project I have been working on about the Alkali Act of 1863. I am interested in the layering that occurs with a collage of acetone transfers on Japanese papers and the sense of depth they create- these images while referring to a forest, symbolic of the sublime in the 18th century (Casper David Friedrich), here represent a dying or disappearing canopy of trees and denotes mankind’s ambiguous relationship with nature and the traces of the human that continue to shape our landscapes.
This new project is based on images I took in the Atacama desert, northern Chile and refers to a multitude of landscape imagery from early prints of Mount Fuji by 18th century Japanese printmakers to the photographs of hidden satellites in the nightsky by Trevor… Read More
