|Abstract: ||Solo exhibition of C-type prints, examining our visual and cultural relationship to the atom bomb.The interrelationship between constructions of landscape, constructions of history and the politics of landscape are explored through the legacies and tropes of the nuclear test photograph from the archives of the Imperial War Museum, English landscape painting and forms reflective of the popular imaginary.
Through a process of juxtaposition and construction the work examines conceptions of truth; how they were to be derived, positively or negatively, from painting, model-making and photography. The series therefore comprised photographs of constructed dioramas, model figures and a painted backdrop depicting Romantic landscapes and nuclear clouds.|
