Anna King works in oils on paper pasted onto board, drawing into the wet paint with a pencil to create a deconstructed, sketch-like finished piece. Her desolate landscapes and buildings jive so nicely with the end result.
My work explores the margins of landscape – overlooked, peripheral places – abandoned buildings, wastelands, plantations and quarries. These structures are marks we’ve made on the world, and now time passes without human intervention – paint peels, grass grows through cracks in concrete and the temporary nature of our own existence is brought into sharper focus.
