About

In the aftermath of the London Olympics where Danny Boyle presented an opening show inspired by this ‘green and pleasant land', BEARSPACE presents ‘The Aftermath,' an exhibition of new work by artists Suzanne Moxhay and Geoff Diego Litherland, who capture their visions of familiar yet otherworldly lands framed like film sets. Both artists work by combining found imagery with their own images - Moxhay builds complex montages which fuse found photographs from mid century travel magazines with her own photography, this series ‘Penumbra' was largely inspired by exploring the edgelands of London, where small patches of wilderness encroach on the man made environment, creating strange juxtapositions of the natural and urban. Litherland is a painter who appropriates 18th Century painting by displacing it into science fiction fantasy scenescapes. In both cases the artists create lands which are at once recognisable and imagined, creating a strange sense of deja vu.
