The sculptural photographic body of work by Alexander Nesbitt – These three dimensional collage panel photographic works are comprised of a series of images shot at varying angles to form a composite image. The arrangement is previsualized and shot on location to fit together the way they are later assembled.
The printed images are epoxy coated or lacquered and adhered to rigid panels. These are bolted together with the individual images angled from one another in a series of fragmented planes that create a piece which arcs toward the viewer and stands proud of the wall.
Below is a large collage called “Abandonment” on Epoxy coated plywood panels. This was first exhibited in a solo show in the Newport Art Museum Ilgenfritz gallery in 2003 and has been in storage since. The image depicts a mysterious view of the largely unknown “Redoubt” at Fort Adams in Newport.
