Richard Konecky
Distilled Landscape

This exhibition was first shown at Albumen Gallery in 2019

In 2018  Richard Konecky spent a week doing aerial photography in remote northern Kenya. From the vantage point of a helicopter his aim was to focus on diverse and remote, largely inaccessible landscape. Desert savannahs, sand dunes, volcanic fields, lakes and alpine vistas. From sea level to Mount Kenya at 15,500' elevation, from the amazing Rift valley to the meandering rivers and dry riverbeds in the Chalbi desert to the enormous Lake Turkana.

For Konecky the actual landscape marks the beginning of a creative journey. In the words of Paul Klee, ‘the intention is not to reflect the visible, but to make visible.’ What is made visible through the lens of Konecky's camera at times can be an abstract image distilling the landscape that presents itself down to very basic characteristic shapes and lines.
