Janet Prestons work can be described as being on the cusp between printmaking and photography. All her work is derived from a series of photographs taken at various stages of dereliction, demolition or development.
Prayer Flags by Janet Preston
The unnatural steep falling of a building fašade or a strange cropped part of a building, as in 'Prayer Flags' is important. Slightly tipsy, slightly suffering, somewhat falling.
Intriguing composition add to Preston's images. Older buildings are targeted for her compositions. The images are important memories, visual mementos of visual culture, architecture that is no more.
