Julie Lawrence, Transitions, 2015
This week in #Five2Watch we take a look at works dealing with the landscape in different ways.
Julie Lawrence, Jessica Lloyd-Jones, Adam King,
Pandora Vaughan and Michael Day
During a residency at leitrim sculpture centre Ireland, Lloyd-Jones experimented with chemically formulating her own recipes for producing rust using various forms of iron and oxidizing agents. The work is built up in layers, colours emerging over a period of time and chemical changes taking place on the canvas. Rust has an imbued sense of time - the very nature by which it forms. Orange illumination references the flow of molten metal during iron productionView Jessica Lloyd-Jones's profile
Hard To Tell At This Distance, 2011
Using found footage, this piece shows the spectacular view from the top of a mountain at the end of a Norwegian cable car journey. Captured by persons unknown using the now obsolete Video-8 format, the footage has been digitised and re-edited, leaving the unstable camerawork and prosaic voiceover of the original director intact. This piece lets us sample borrowed memories, inciting fond recollection of a place we may never have visitedView Michael Day's profile
