Partial Eclipse, A (Signed)

by: Martin Boyce
A Partial Eclipse brings together photographs from an on-going private library of images which feeds into Boyce’s work. The images adopt a sombre and darkened palette, as if the light has been stolen from each photograph creating the illusion of a mythical perma-dusk allowing us to see the world as Boyce sees it.

Publisher's Description

Martin Boyce is known for his large installation work in sculpture, creating angular replications of the world around him, finding meaning in everyday surroundings and working steel structures into amplifications of these moments in space and time.

“It's all about landscape, I’m interested in the psychological landscape, the physical landscape, the built environment, the things we pass through everyday and then occasionally catch a glimpse of and maybe see something that has a meaningful resonance.”

A Partial Eclipse brings together photographs from an on-going private library of images which feeds into Boyce’s work. The images adopt a sombre and darkened palette, as if the light has been stolen from each photograph creating the illusion of a mythical perma-dusk allowing us to see the world as Boyce sees it. Images of trees and foliage permeate the collection, ellipses and perforations reoccur, patterns of cracks, fractures and spider webs repeat and thresholds appear in the form of windows and doorways.

Hundreds of photographs were edited down until the shape of a book emerged. The series creates the feeling of stillness and distance between the viewer and photograph. Printed on double sided paper, the photographs reflect blurrily in the coated page opposite it’s matte brother. The book as an object extends the experience of distance through its design, keeping the darkened images enclosed and projected between the folds of paper.
