Dee Ferris Limited Edition

Dee Ferris makes paintings that reevaluate idealised consumer culture within the traditional genre of landscape painting. Her Limited Edition, which is part of our Curated Editions collection New Mythologies, is a reworking of a travel image, subjected to a process of dissolution.

Dee Ferris’ Limited Edition Farewell Song (Spring Water Dripping) hand-finished in her studio

‘I start with very ‘ideal’ travel images. I’m drawn to them because they’re so gorgeous. But, over time, they erode and disintegrate. I like to think of my paintings as an undoing of the original image.’

Spotlight

Meet Dee Ferris

With a keen eye for colour and narrative, Dee Ferris’ work pushes against the serenity of idealised travel images found in books and glossy magazines. She talks to curator Becca Pelly-Fry about her exquisite landscapes which are at once peaceful and intentionally unsettled, and the Limited Edition she's made for our inaugural Curated Editions collection, New Mythologies.
