Where can I see it?
This work is on display at Cambridge University Library in The Horizon is the point of no return: works by Georgie Grace and from the Kettle’s Yard Collection until 10 June. Through her selection of landscape paintings and sculptures, chosen for their looming and curious qualities, Grace explores the idea that a landscape painting can act as both a static image to look at and a window to look through into the outside world. ‘Marking Time’ (1975) is displayed with Gregorio Vardenagas’ ‘Disc’ hanging in front of it, which casts light onto and magnifies the work depending on where you are standing in the space.
About the artist
Eric Moody (born 1946) is known for his coloured reliefs with the city and suburbs as their theme, he often focusses on material culture, architecture and found materials to create meditations on the urban environment.
“In Eric Moody’s work I find a refreshing awareness of some alternative ways of structuring experience. The methods are complementary rather than competing and the results are equally valid…His starting point is an acute scrutiny of everyday objects and experiences.”
