Susan Derges
River Taw
Medium: Photogram
Year made: 1997
River Taw illustrates that Susan’s interest in the behaviour of flowing water and botanical organisms is not simply in recording and observing, but in the poetically rich metaphors that they provide for describing the connections between ourselves and the natural world. Using time and light to create arresting images, she achieves a fusion of art and science in her photographic work. The British artist, Susan Derges, trained as a painter before turning to photography, and in particular to the cameraless photography for which she has become best known. Derges has exhibited extensively in Europe, America and Japan and has works in many museum collections including the Metropolitan Museum, New York and the Victoria & Albert Museum, London.
Location: London
Date acquired: 11 March 1997
