Suzanne Moxhay’s images present dilapidated structures seemingly overcome by nature over the years – only these places do not exist. The works are photo collages, whereby the artist layers her own photography with images of antique paintings and landscapes to create subtly inconsistent but nonetheless convincing scenes. Rooms and corridors are stitched together from diverse source photographs, populated with incongruous plants while the walls dissolve into Romantic painted vistas. It is a method of working that fabricates an emotion as much as a scene, channelling a sense of nostalgia with a magical air to suggest how we project such narratives and ideals into Romantic imagery.
