Kelly Richardson
This Island Earth
 
Kelly Richardson makes works that draw on cinema and the history of landscape painting as inspiration. Typically taking months to render, Richardson's images seamlessly integrate computer-generated imagery with footage shot in the natural wilderness to create haunting immersive landscapes. This Island Earth contrasts the high-definition video installations Orion Tide and The Last Frontier with a C-print of her landmark panorama Mariner 9. Each futuristic environment suggests the fallout from some undefined man-made or ecological catastrophe. Combining aspects of the Romantic sublime with tropes of extinction more common to video games and contemporary cinema, her landscapes share a 'calculated ambiguity' that makes them at once arresting and unsettling. This body of work illuminates our planets pending environmental crisis while inviting us to ponder possible futures. Kelly Richardson is represented by Birch Contemporary, Toronto. www.kellyrichardson.net
