Through the use of large colour photographs, Lisa White investigates the power of the sky and its ability to draw us in and allow us to transcend/ escape the present. Using minimal compositions of construction sites, buildings and sky, the works draw upon society's constant need to construct and de-construct its environment.
This series of work is inspired by Yoko Ono’s story of spending hours with her brother watching the sky and clouds drift past, inventing menus in their heads to counter hunger, during World War 2 food shortages. (Tristan Deratz)
