Orion Tide (Edition) I & II is a diptych featuring a desert landscape at night with what appears to be numerous spacecraft or vessels leaving planet earth. Is this space exploration on a grand scale or is this some kind of mass exodus?
Kelly Richardson often creates ambiguous works that provoke a mixture of contrasting emotions in the viewer. Orion Tide (Edition) I & II could present a number of scenarios – a mass departure from earth, war, or an army of space probes – all of which connote a kind of contemporary sublime, beautiful but equally terrifying.
The prints were developed from a large-scale photographic work, Orion Tide, commissioned by National Glass Centre, Sunderland. The work is exhibited there from 31st May until 9th September 2012.
Orion Tide (Edition) I & II are available to purchase either as a diptych or individually. Numbers 1 to 20 from each edition will only be sold as a pair.
