SUFFOLK SKYLINE SERIES
HEATHER ON TUNSTALL COMMON NEAR SNAPE MALTINGS, SUFFOLK.
From her studio in a remote WW2 airbase in Suffolk, Abi examines photographs of landscapes - snapshots of nature that in her mind's eye transform into mental impressions to stimulate imagination, abstract memory and a compelling sense of place. Created from original photographs using a unique corruption process to form colour and structure which, when combined with digital and mixed media techniques, imbue the original scene with a hypnotic quality.
Also inspired by the idea of data visualisation as an art form using data and coding to allow the weather to influence these pieces giving it a collaborative outcome between nature, technology and human influence; drawing directly from the landscape, both visually and sensorily, the technology used to corrupt the file and my input a little like a curator or choreographer arranging the information.
