Landscape I – IV

Matt Saunders has been working on a series of landscape etchings since 2015. In an allusion to Wallace Steven’s poem Six Significant Landscapes, the series will ultimately comprise six prints. Drawn from film stills, each of Saunders‘ landscapes is at once an empty scene open to projection and an emblem of the emotive and narrative currents swirling off camera. Saunders has spoken of these works as ‘grasping for the subconsciousness’ of the film.
