Field of Infinity, 2018

Inspired by both Italian Renaissance paintings and contemporary news broadcasts from Gaza protests at the border with Israel – the work processes human gestures and figures in landscape into a dark and colourful scramble. The work aims to open up an array of reflections, including concerns about the political image, image of the political, the politics of the image, and the image of image.
