Kathleen Herbert  They take us away to the thin air of the future or the underworld of the past


They take us away to the thin air of the future or the underworld of the past is a series of Black & White photographs upon which the artist drew constellations using laser cut. There are 12 photographs, one for each month.

They take us away to the thin air of the future or the underworld of the past, is a quote by poet and writer Edward Thomas describing the chalk paths of the South Downs. Thomas saw these paths as historical evidence of human activity, a form of participation in a continual communal history. Kathleen’s black and white landscape photographs look outwards searching for footpaths, tracks and roads as a way forward. The patterns, stories and navigational maps of the night sky punctuate these images and create voids waiting to be filled.
