‘As a sculptor [Erin] Shirreff’s eye for texture and form expresses itself photographically as a near genetic-level understanding of how light can visually transform the sculptural manipulations of material. That’s been true her entire career. Past pictures include sharp and spectral images of hand-hewn objects glowing like the surface of the moon, or the smooth angles and curves of other things brooding in shadow. If photography is about light and sculpture about material, Shirreff’s work makes an unresolvable knot of the two that’s as beautiful as it is puzzling’.

In a recent body of work, Shirreff employs dye sublimation printing processes, a method in which the photographic image is transferred onto a thin sheet of metal. Each aluminium print features a fragment of a reproduction of a sculpture magnified beyond recognition so that the resulting image is abstracted; nothing more than a collection of halftone dots. Shirreff cuts each print into shapes reminiscent of leftover scraps of paper, before assembling them as informal dioramas in deep-set frames. These three-dimensional compositions are at once sculptural and photographic, interrogating the space between the dimensional and pictorial.
