Andrew Curtis‘ new exhibition is Moonlight Mile, eerie night photographs of mounds of earth. These are dark, scale-less images that continue in a similar vein from his earlier projects Underpin (2006) and Slab (2003).
Working in darkness he has the photographic equivalent of a blank canvas, though in charcoal black, with his lamps painting in the lighter tones. The result has no equivalent in nature, the eerie artificial glow like something from a dream, or a film. It is all artifice. The setups are intricate and difficult to photograph, the building sites turned into giant still-lifes. – blockprojects.com
Moonlight Mile runs at Blockprojects in Richmond from February 6 to March 2.
