2020 Finalists

Lydia WEGNER

Artist statement: My practice explores staged photography and the magic of visual abstraction. Conjured from an analogue process that manipulates form and colour; the work stretches our perception of space and light, creating illusionary images. The works emerge from my studio as I carefully layer and balance objects, paper and reflective materials upon the tabletop. Using studio lighting and coloured gels, these simple materials are then cast with bold shadows, sharp lines and colour before being captured by the camera.
