Glasgow-based artist and filmmaker Rachel Nolan uses photography to abstract the mundane.
My entire body of work derives from a deep fascination with architectural spaces and man-made constructions. I’m constantly searching for new urban landscapes. I record my explorations with my old analogue camera – I’m in love with the poetic quality of film photography – the texture, grain, depth and colours.
The Sky Object series is about the blurring lines between reality and dreams. By taking photographs of mundane and overlooked objects in the skyline, then isolating them from Earth, these objects take on a new form and meaning – free, floating sculptures in the sky.
