Untitled (Illusion, Surface, Flatness)
Untitled (Illusion, Surface, Flatness) reflects the idea of a zone existing between transparency and opacity and propose seeing as a wider sensorial experience. Three colour prints, and a chain link curtain, invite the viewer to consider the relationship between illusion flatness and surface, emphasising the act of looking and obstruction. In opposition to the act of reading and interpreting images, when layers are deconstructed and revealed, the physical making of the images happens as several surfaces are overlaid creating various overlaps of enlargements, compressions and information. Considering the nature and materiality of photography and the dualities of digital and analogue, the work embeds ideas around labour, abstraction, alongside the agency of the viewer.
