Off Road, work by Sarah Keeling
Image making that diverts boundaries and follows an associative thought process, Off-Road describes themes within the work and the spirit in which it is made. Images and hand-made objects explore subtext within the representation of landscape scenes. Playful photographs bring the outdoors into a portrait studio and images borrow from classic portrayals of idealism and nature in relation to the female figure. The work addresses landscape as a timeless place where solutions are sought and asks, is it misguided to look? Off-Road presents a creative process that parallels a search at the heart of landscape imagery.

bombyx collective, Passage
Children can play in a free flow of imagination and in-the-moment interactions. As we grow into adults, we often harden into our roles and live more in the past and future than the present. Who are we when we return to that unfettered flow of childhood? Does the path lead us back to the same adult that we were before?
