Chermiah Hart 60's Architecture
1st to 30th September 2009
London's cityscape is a unique mixture of old and new buildings. Chermiah started by visually exploring on the subject of 'The Architectural Landmark', it was not long until she settled her focus on architectural landmarks of the 60s such as 'Keeling House'. This body of work was submitted as part of Chermiah's masterpiece photography project and was part of a collection of studies. These include: visual works on Oxford's university architecture, vernacular architecture of the Baltic Islands, US vernacular country houses and collected theme park constructions.
In this photographic series, Chermiah compares architecture to giant objects or historic artifacts. In this way she found she could be more flexible with the building as a subject. "There are cross-sections of the building that render sensual poetry and authentic perspectives that are based on the graphic presentation, the pattern and the abstract."
Chermiah has hopes that these buildings will be pictured from a different perspective, capturing them in unexpected ways, appreciating the modern aesthetic values that they represent, and that they will become memories of the past, a bygone era.Featuring 1 artistChermiah Hart
