  • I’m going to see her exhibition in march 🙂 I LOVE her photos, there almost like paintings. My favorite is the last one.

    • yes they are very painterly, from what i understand she uses actors

  • lapetitefaon

    beautiful, I love how even the fourth image manages to convey the same sense of longing as the other ones even without people!

  • Reminds me of Vermeer.

  • Danny

    I love the first, I really enjoy her work but had never seen that one. Tom Hunter is another British artist who has a similar painterly quality. He recreated a Vermeer painting in one of his pieces.

  • It’s a pity she doesn’t have a proper portfolio site. But then again, I suppose that only enhances the ephemeral/cinematic nature of her images.

    The photo that follows the saatchi link might be my favorite.

Lines6
