In this exhibition, Litherland presents new elements to his ever- expanding alternative universe in the form of octagonal paintings alongside laser engraved maps and fictional explorers.
Litherland combines traditional genres of painting with the surrealism of science fiction and the fantasia of abstraction. Through paint and carefully guided compositions, parallel worlds are carefully composed and constructed, setting a tone that questions human perception and relationship to nature.The work inhabits a post-apocalyptic world where nature is a mirage, being supported in a very tenuous way, offering a sense of an ecological disaster.
