Andrew Sutherland’s latest exhibition, Other Dust, has been created almost entirely by referencing his growing collection of archival photographs, postcards and memorabilia.

The idea behind extracting elements found within these references has been to create new stories from old worlds.

Sutherland started marvelling over old imagery and memorabilia many years ago but has only recently started to bring these references to light.

As well as being a great source of days gone by, these images also offer a tactile, used or handled feeling that emits great warmth.

All the works on display were made in Taiwan, where Sutherland has been living and travelling for the last one and a half years. His exposure to Eastern culture has played a part in the development in this series. His exposure to different ways of living and practices has helped shape this body of work.
