Alex Lundy

In passing is a new body of work by Canberra artist Alex Lundy, comprising of a series of screen prints that are a continuation of the artists interest in the fluctuating human experience of time.


Lundy has used photographic techniques to create stuttered, stretched and compressed images from the point of view of the passenger in a vehicle. The CMYK printing process used to print the series, separates each layer and allows Lundy to exaggerate particular elements within the image, revealing on closer inspection the fine particle-like dots that come together to form the image. The distortion and slight unease of a familiar tunnel is inspired by the intergalactic space travel scenes from science-fiction films such as Interstellar (Christopher Nolan, 2014) and 2001: A Space Odyssey (Stanley Kubrick, 1968). In passing places the viewer as a passenger. The series of prints explore an imagined representation of how time could be manipulated, thus questioning what relation time has to the human experience.
