Raquel Yago Boj’s work is an investigation into the construction of the photographic image and by extension our perceptual understanding and relationship to it.
In her most recent series, geometric coloured objects are placed into the landscape in such a way as to appear to run parallel (or flat) to the picture plane through the cameras fixed perspective point.
The ensuing photographic print denies these objects their three-dimensional materiality, creating the illusion of flat entities of pure colour floating on the picture plane at odds with the surrounding landscape. This collision interrupts the autonomy of the image and breaks our ability to read it as a unified pictorial space. Instead the viewers attention is directed to contemplate the abstract and illusory nature of the pictorial representation.
