All animals leads us to light

by Geoff Litherland

The imagery in the work is selected from a multitude of influences that are often chosen for their prophetic
and apocalyptic undertones. Images are filtered through a historical materialist perspective, where the past is
seen as ongoing and shifting in meaning dependent on the position of the present.

Idealized romantic landscapes are held up by increasingly fragile supports, which are pieced together
from the debris of spacecraft, industrial structures and painterly remains.

Through the appropriation of resonating ideologies such as Romanticism and early Science Fiction, the paintings
seek to not only question our perception of nature, but paintings’ historical and current role in that.
