Definition Series - 2009

Brian Anderson

This series of eight photo-based works explores the relationship between context and abstraction. Suggestive of contemporary automobile advertisements, the imposed text reveals the appeal of the bright and shiny by referencing the natural and the geopolitical. These close-up images evoke the fluidity and beauty of luxury vehicles while disguising the negative impact of car culture on the environment and society.

Curated by Edward Rowtmann-Hunter
