The surreal and unsettling landscapes of British artist Suzanne Moxhay are views into apocalyptic worlds made through photomontage. By mixing her own photography with archival images, she carefully crafts haunting tableaus. To achieve the end result, Moxhay uses an early 20th-century technique called matte painting.
Originally used in cinema, artists would paint artwork on glass panels that would then be integrated with filmed footage. The result is a seamless environment that would have otherwise been impossible to achieve in its era of invention. Moxhay brings this theatrical sensibility to her work, with pieces that seem as though they are film stills.
