Scottish artist Carol Rhodes, (1959-2018), made remarkable paintings that depicted a semi-fictional geography, depopulated, yet shaped by the human activities of industry, habitation, forestry, landscaping, transport and quarrying.
These small, psychologically charged works are at once densely representational and powerfully abstract, engaging with the nature of perception, recognition, and depiction.
This is the first monograph on Rhodes's work, and contains two illuminating essays - one by the renowned art critic Tom Lubbock and the other by artist and writer Merlin James. Over thirty of her works are illustrated, charting Rhodes's development from the early 1990s onwards.
