The exhibition challenges the notion of traditional photography by playing with invented chemical processes, projections, surprising layers of photography and paint. On this occasion the artist discloses her frustrations with accepted boundaries in art, as she looks to transitional techniques and materials in her practice as a mode of breaking these down. Printed and projected digital and analogue images are layered; they melt into one another, encouraging the viewer to look multiple times and detect the hidden figures haunting the faded landscapes deep in the background of the abstract images.
