On Landscape

On Landscape is a single channel video-loop by Sydney-based artist Andrew Robards that explores the presence of landscape in the Western. It is part of a larger body of work that Robards is pursuing that deals with the Western genre in historical cinema and its relation to contemporary culture. By repeating film stills and arranging them into geometric patterns it transforms a single linear image into an abstract multiple, examining how the repetition found in cinematic imagery creates composite visual mythologies.
