Rock Garden Series, 2018 by Cian Holt
30 x 23 cm each
These works are part of the Rock Garden series, which was inspired by my wanderings through overlooked or forgotten spaces and places. Documenting my passage and response to these sites along the way in an attempt to capture the mood or atmosphere. Scenes of quiet desolation where evidence of past human intervention is slowly being reclaimed or overgrown are of particular interest. These photographs have been constructed with the layered view of history and conflict of environments in mind. I hope to disrupt any conventional viewing or reading of my ‘landscapes’ in order to examine out relationship with the land and environment.
