Photographs in an inflection of the heterotopic leitmotif of her paintings, bring objects from outside and carefully positions them, stages them so that the re-contextualised object becomes ‘other’ in scale and in essence. Such status inversion invites a scrutiny of that which would normally be overlooked. This privileged foregrounding invites an attention which renders the objects strange to the point of surreal.


The resulting change of signification produces a different reading of the alien space surrounding the introduced object. Thus, the mass of ‘Mount Lichen’ is called into question as it hovers above a shimmering, dissolving ‘terrain’ where solidity appears increasingly fluid. These are now landscapes and contained, miniaturised worlds, where nature is elided with culture and all is pleasingly other and strange.
