Summary

Overview (after Turner) Emily Allchurch

These light box works are part of the 2004 'Settings' series. Emily uses Old Master paintings as a camera obscura to recreate contemporary and imaginary landscapes. She forms collages using thousands of digital photographs and elements from classical paintings – seamlessly overlaying the old with new. This provides a commentary on the past and present, creating a sense of continuity between the two.
