STARLING (2018)
Russell Marsh

Metalic foil

I became transfixed by the metallic shimmer curtain, an object usually associated with kitsch and gaudiness.

I wanted to take it out of its usual context and place it in a more elemental and sublime environment. A landscape.

It immediately took on another form, becoming alive, a reflection of the conditions it inhabits.

It makes the pattern and movement of the wind visible to the human eye, abstracting itself, allowing the viewer to perceive it as something completely other.
