‘It’s armchair landscape. Sometimes I get to see a place before or after I’ve had dealings with it but it doesn’t necessarily make a difference to what I do.’
Alberta Bamonte is a painter, draughtsman and printmaker. Her recent work is derived from satellite images of the earth with a focus on environmental issues. The paintings in the Badlandscapes series call our attention to the destruction of natural topography as a result of greenhouse gases or aggressive industry at the same time highlighting the beauty of the landscapes left behind.
