Abstract

In this body of work, produced by photographing in mist and fog, the landscape subject becomes obscured, sometimes even invisible. The shoreline depicted is strewn with detritus creating an atmosphere of melancholy reminiscent of the desolate ruins found in the work of the 19th Century German landscape painter, Caspar David Friedrich. These works investigate philosophical ideas of the ‘sublime’, developed from the 18th century onward. Details:Series of five works, entitled, 'The Lough I, II, III, IV, V', colour lightjet photographic prints mounted on dibond, each measuring 80 cm x 100 cm. Edition of three.
