Darren Almond

Fascinated by the notion of time and its representation, Almond’s diverse body of work incorporates film, drawing, installation, sculpture and photography. His subjects are as diverse as clocks, train plates, bus shelters. They reveal feelings about the passage of time, themes of personal and historical memory, movement and space. For his Fullmoon series, Almond travels around the world to find new angles and the photographs he brings back contain deep references to the painting, without ever referring to it directly. He takes his photographs at night: the only source of light is the full moon. The landscape becomes visible by using extended exposure of time and turns a dark night into a light day, often appearing ghostly.
