Taken over the course of one autumn in Upstate New York, Rebecca Reeve’s Through Looking series – shortlisted for the Aesthetica Art Prize 2019 – uses grid-like forms to capture, arrange and organise the landscape.
Created in response to the environment, the photographs introduce blinds as an almost democratic character within the composition, marking scenery through equal units of space and shrouding the viewer with a limited view.
As Reeve reflects: “This offers a renewed perspective of our wider place within the world, evoking a mirror-like awareness of how interior and exterior landscapes are increasingly separated.”
See the works at the Aesthetica Art Prize Exhibition 2019, opening at York Art Gallery on 8 March. Find out more here.
