Through the lens of Modernist domesticity, Alex Hartley‘s new exhibition The Houses explores different ways we think about the built environment, and the boundaries we create with natural spaces.

The exhibition is based on photographs of Modernist domestic architecture taken by Hartley himself over a period of 25 years, mainly around the Los Angeles area. The photographs are separated beneath hand-painted elements which describe, distort and embellish the landscape, playing with the viewer’s sense of boundaries.
