From the Catalogue:
In her recent series Measuring Infinity, Chloe Sells explores the finite and the infinite and the point at which they meet. Photographing in Botswana’s Makgadikgadi, one of the largest salt pans in the world, Sells has captured the strange geology of the land and the visual tricks it plays on us. This desolate landscape – resembling an ocean – consists of shallow pans that are either dry or filled with caustic water. Blues, the work offered here, depicts a pan following a summer rainstorm. To create this work, Sells shot with a 4 x 5 in. large-format camera, developed the print in a colour darkroom then painted the sky with watercolour ink. The resulting work is unique and represents the different feelings of being in this vast and fascinating place. Sells lives between London and Maun in Botswana, and her work is held in various collections, including Central Saint Martins, London and Cleveland Clinic, Ohio.
