Capturing the ineffable relationship between humans and the environment is a driving force behind the work of Tamara Dean. Her compositions suggest our connection with nature may be shaped by ritual, but is ultimately intuitive. Being on site, and a rich experience of place is as important as the final tableau. The artist’s verdant photographs play with twilight, reflections on water and nude models who take on a sentient liminality representing both the human footprint and also mirror patterns in nature like fish shoaling, to explore evolution.
