Central to the exhibition is a series of miniature macquettes that spread through the gallery space. Derived from recent projects within natural landscapes (mountains, forests, coastlines) and the exploration of environments, the new works seek to abstract or refine particular features of these sites, reflecting on our relationship to open spaces.
David Ogle commented: “I am fascinated by the ways in which natural landscapes can evolve and change each time you visit them. The work in this exhibition seeks to question our fundamental attachment to these places and the constituent elements that bring meaning and resonance to confronting them.”
Alongside this, Ogle presents a series of recent videos and photographs highlighting new landscapes and moments in time. Recorded in rural locations across the North, singular fleeting moments are created through the use of light and smoke, abstracting reality and creating a new magical space.
Mark Devereux added: “Over the last 3-years we have worked with David to enable a new way of making, within outdoor, rural locations. We’re proud to be collaborating with Standpoint Gallery to present a major exhibition of new and recent works that draw upon and present these experiences.”
