Edward Dooley An altered environment

My work combines the postmodern mediums of installation, photography and found object sculpture to explore the destructive impact humans have on nature. I explored the textural interplay of surfaces in the natural environment, then juxtaposed and layered the found, natural materials with images from the urban environment created out of perspex. Placing these objects in different environments accentuates my artwork’s theme of the evolution, decay and destruction of the natural environment. My work reflects the dominant influence of humans on the ever-shifting natural landscape, a reminder of what our world has become.

Influencing artists: Andy Goldsworthy, Jonathan Borofsky, Sculpture by the Sea
