Colclough’s works draw on references to Arts & Craft furniture, esoteric geometry and early optical contraptions. Using a pared down sculptural language, Colclough’s meticulously built structures both suspend and frame hand-drawn images. These monochrome images are painstakingly rendered, recalling early natural history illustrations but inscribed with an apocalyptic presence. Examining the history of pictorial landscape Colclough unsettles the viewer’s experience through duplication and separation, drawing attention to the experience and mechanics of seeing itself.
