Lesley Punton

Experiences of metaphorical Northern places, and of gradual movements and shifts have permeated much of Punton’s working process. In this piece, an archival image of a lightship is digitally altered and re-named Kurtz. It is part of a larger series that re-names lightships after literary characters who undergo revelatory transformations.

Kurtz (Heart of Darkness), 2009. From the series Lightship. 14.2cm x 10.5cm. Lithographic postcard from digitally altered found photograph, shown on an oak shelf.
