  • Catalogue Essay

    In Yellow Door, Venables shows us a surreal interior with intoxicating colours. While the space is void of people, we still feel their presence in the half-visible room and even on the door. Her image-making process is labourious: she photographs a space from multiple angles then digitally collages the separate images to create a single image. The resulting work is a distorted, Alice-in-Wonderland version of reality.
