22 June – 16 July 2016

A new exhibition of camera-less photography by Paul Kenny will include recent works from his series Seaworks and O’Hanami – re-imaginings of objects found along the shoreline and forest floors of Great Britain.

Working without a camera, Kenny creates small plates or slides laden with objects found on his wanderings: leaves, flowers, shells and rocks. Each plate is then scanned to produce abstract large-scale photographs rich with opalescent colours, which take on the form of imagined landscapes.

Environmentally minded, Kenny is insistent that, although experimental, his work is first and foremost photography and cites the influence of land artists including Richard Long and Andy Goldsworthy. Building on forty years of work, this exhibition will highlight a new interest in Kenny’s work with the division of land through man-made grids, in the form of maps and arbitrary demarcations.
