Green with Envy
by Layla Rudneva Mackay
Publisher's Description
According to New Zealand-based artist Layla Rudneva-Mackay, the photographic work in this exhibition catalog has emerged for the “ruins” of her sculptural practice, and exists in parallel with her graphic work, painting and writing. Her evocative, mystical photos have evolved from a practice characterized by poetic slips and language holes. Such photographic work characteristically involves forms, figures and situations set up against interior and exterior backdrops; their gestures and activities vague and sometimes obscured or altered by fabric and paint. This oversized, soft-covered catalogue surveys here photographic works from 2003 to 2010. Their theatrical quality is not surprising; the artist also works as a costume designer and fabricator on films such as The Chronicles of Narnia.
