About the Work
"I’m a big fan of Richard Wotton’s photography. The Sarjeant Gallery has a great collection of his work and it was very hard to pick one. I chose this work because I like its tight framing and use of shadow. It elevates and transforms a utilitarian detail into something else. I like how Wotton’s series ‘Walls and Fences’, of which this work is a part, is attentive to the unheroic aesthetic decisions that make a place unique."
