Volta 1 and 2, and Emergent were created for Wildflower Restaurant at the Como Treasury in Perth. The hyper-real panoramic aesthetic references the utopian, hybrid landscapes of 19th century French scenic wallpapers. The works bring together multiple points of perspective, different locations and times of the day. Elements are arranged to create seamless and therefore impossible place; a vast seascape that is familiar yet somehow non-specific, that appears so real that it should exist but couldn’t possibly.
