Dominic Pote To Exhibit At The Yard Gallery At Wollaton Hall
19th September – 7th October 2009
11am – 5pm FREE ENTRY
Dominic Pote has been working with a unique photographic process, making large-scale panoramic images for over ten years now. Working somewhere between the film maker and the still photographer, his exposures last for a long as he keeps moving. Framed by the physical act of walking his images are both literal and metaphorical journeys, movements through space so that there remains something of the organic feel of their making. This exhibition will be showcasing a selection of his landscape works taken from all over England that offer an interesting perspective on the relationship between the artist, the subject matter and time itself.
He has worked and exhibited all over the world, including a residency at Experian offices in Nottingham where he accompanied staff members on their journeys to work to take photographs based on their observations. His photographs include scenes at Attenborough, the Trent Embankment and Radcliffe on Trent.
He says: “I wanted to portray the notion of the "missed landscape", that which is experienced only on the peripherals of vision, as one is travelling.”
Cllr DaveTrimble, Nottingham City Council’s Portfolio holder for Leisure, Culture and Customers, said:
“Dominic’s work with Experian gives this exhibition a particular local relevance.”
