> DESCRIPTION

Blade’s work deals with ideas of supermodernity – the concept of society existing in a hyper-realized modernity, detached from the past. His images of empty subways, motorways and airport terminals invoke a sense of isolation and non-place. These images reflect the lack of personal connection in our rapidly changing society, accentuated by the absence of any human figures. Blade’s new work creates a sense of unease, dislocation and foreboding, but one that is certainly familiar in our contemporary urban landscape.
