Abigail Reynolds

I discovered Reynolds’ work a while ago, and was fascinated by The Universal Now series: an ongoing collection of sculptural photographs. Reynolds starts with a vintage book plate as the ‘base’ of the collage, and then searches for other old photographs of the location taken from a similar perspective and scale. These images are then cut and folded into a lattice-like form to create a new kaleidoscopic representation of the place, which Reynolds describes as ‘suspended in time’. The creative process is as interesting as the final work, an exploration into time and space. ‘The act of folding one image into the other pushes them out into three dimensions in a bulging time ruffle’.
