These images are from the south island of New Zealand. Im from New Zealand and have a local knowing of where i am,where places are and how to get there, a home. While the landscape is in large part the picture, it is also a backdrop and a setting. The subsequent alterations, smudges and insertions within the frame articulate my doubts about trying to interpret an image as part of ‘the real’. By repurposing the environments, i am more confident about their status as an artwork-leading them away from a possible truth into being a beautiful lie.
