Ancient Camera by David Lunney
Lunney’s artistic practice involves the undertaking of protracted art processes. Typically, these processes start with the construction of site-specific or portable sculptural works in The Dublin and Wicklow Mountains. These sculptures are generally created less for their inherent value but rather to provide photographic source material for documentary artworks.
The resulting documentary artworks can take the form of prints, drawings or photographs. These images are rendered, framed and presented in a fashion that intentionally obscures and embellishes the original object and moment that they represent.
In these artworks, it is often the relationship between representational imagery and it’s surrounding abstract visual information which infers the processes and concepts behind the work. The works have a self-contained narrative; the concept and the material process are intrinsically linked in the artworks discussion of it’s provenance.
