A series of paintings investigating landscape as background, drawing on British 18th-19th-century portraiture made during a period when landscape was being established as a genre. These fragments of landscapes explore their own existence as a set, a device and act of repetition with the removal of the figure acting as both deletion and assertion of its presence.
