Kelly Richardson

Pillars of Dawn

Canadian artist Kelly Richardson (*1972) belongs to a new generation of artists working with digital technologies to create hyperreal, symbolically highly charged landscapes.

Her series of digitally-born works ‘Pillars of Dawn’ imagines a desert landscape in which environmental conditions have crystallized the terrain.

The series presents a scenario in which we might have to look beyond our current planet for refuge and survival, and they raise myriad questions about how we arrived at such a moment of environmental crisis.

Accompanies the exhibition ‘Kelly Richardson: Pillars of Dawn’, 24 Mar – 13 May 2019, Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art, Sunderland, UK.
