Margaret Saliske – Recent Work
(for information and sales, contact firstname.lastname@example.org)
I am interested in manipulating how we see the natural world and man made objects that reside in it. How structure can alter depth of field and create a new setting for what is familiar.
I use photographic images of landscapes, architecture and industrial sites. The landscapes, though flat photographic images, become 3 dimensional again by cutting, folding, creating new planes and spaces that juxtapose the natural imagery.
Most recently I have become interested in how architecture and industrial structures are situated in the landscape and have been photographing sites, then removing, reiterating and reimagining elements in a new format . They are abstracted yet still relate to the initial image generating a new space devoid of landscape.
