Giles Revell × Frost*publishing: Break Up
BREAK UP is a series of photographs that set out to symbolically represent the melting and dispersal of ice at the frozen margins of the earth. Giles uses micro-scale materials to mimic, represent and imagine impossibly global scenarios that are recorded from satellites. The highly detailed images depict the creeping of brittle landmasses, sheared coastlines, and drifting ice flows. A series of interpretations of ice, in different states of transition are photographed.
Much of the work of Giles Revell (born 1965, London, UK) revolves around exploring where art and science overlap and photographing it with exquisite attention to detail and a painterly mastery of light. Giles' photographs capture natural processes and illuminate and transform the subject and the aesthete, by celebrating the extraordinary in the ordinary; enabling new ways of seeing and thinking. His work is displayed in the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Natural History Museum in London.
