2019 Finalists

Anna CAREY

Artist statement: ‘Lost in paradise’ consists of an architectural façade with an eclectic mix of signs to exemplify the homogeneity of vernacular architecture within distant yet connected globalised contemporary cultures. Through memory and imagination, I constructed a miniature fictive space based on world-wide architecture which I then photographed. The camera lens magnifies the model and reminds the viewer that the photograph has been constructed with a miniature materialised object. This aims to create a space of stillness and reflection to invite the viewer to contemplate contemporary signage and urban environments.
