Kat Garlick is a Level 5 (Hons) Photography student at Arts University Bournemouth. Initially influenced by the work of Barbara Kasten, “Forms” is a series of sculptural photographic experiments in response to the colour palette and aesthetic of post-modernism and the 1980s.

A study of colour, form and light, 3-D geometric shapes constructed from cardboard in a variety of bold colours join together to create several abstract compositions. Fleeting sculptures, existing only in the captured moment – also an intrinsic element in Kasten’s work – are created for the camera as futuristic and desolate alien landscapes, distorted in reflection.
