Jane Ward’s ambiguous, convoluted spaces formed of ruptured topographical schisms offer up more than cartographic logic or empirical representation. Ward appropriates the building blocks of landscape; suburban housing tracts, shimmering glass towers and industry choked hinterland, then inverts, misaligns and ruptures, re-employing familiar form in other places and other times.
The architectural elements deployed in the images are edited from photographs taken by Ward, though digital manipulation and hand-applied chemical erosion combine to dissolve image detail and deny understanding of conventional pictorial space; Ward has described this as a ‘reordering that leads us to question the layering of memory with landscape’.
