Prudence Ainslie's prints are constructed worlds, created from Venice's hidden gardens and architecture. These spaces are only glimpsed as a visitor to the city, an outsider, a voyeur.
From these obscured views, selected photographic frames are folded to create structures that emulate the original hidden worlds. Each is re-imaged using the unique Venetian light to create the illusion of 3D. Ainslie explores the dynamic of inside and outside, near and far, confinement and openness.
