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.
