SYNTHETIC STRUCTURES #2

2017

Synthetic Structures #2 explores photography’s inability to represent the truth, examining the problematic of the image as being only ever a double of reality. The work uses digital manipulation to reveal the artifice present in the image, skewing dimension, perspective and space to embrace notions of contemporary Cubism. The locations depicted in the images enter a fabricated pictorial space, aiming to challenge visual perception and asking for a new way to perceive and read images. We recognise that a photograph, and by extension reality, is only ever a construct.
