IAIN MACHELL   Drawings and Sculpture
Sorry, Not Today
wood, hand-carved text
variable dimensions
I think of these as landscape interventions. Signage and text from warfare graphics, security manuals and military advertising intervene with natural landscape settings, carved into organic materials or everyday objects to interrupt our enjoyment of nature. Sited in the Hudson Valley they also function as a more anxious response to landscape art, a dark mirror held up to the romanticism of the Hudson River painters.
