This series further investigates the relationship between painting and photography through its exploration of the allegorical motifs often depicted in 17th Century landscape painting. This body of photographs incorporate the motif of the broken tree, a metaphor of decay and mortality, prevalent in the work of Dutch landscape painter, Jacob Van Ruisdael. The twisted trunks of the gnarled trees depicted in these images, rooted in bogland and swathed in mist, are evocative of the dank and melancholy atmosphere often portrayed in Jacob Van Ruisdael's paintings. These works were produced as part of AHRC funded research project, 'Reconsidering Landscape in Contemporary Photography', 2008 - 2009. Details: Series of four works, entitled, 'Veil XIV, XV, XVI, XVII' (2008), colour lightjet photographic prints each measuring 122 cm x 152 cm. Edition of three.
