“New world born of ancient myths”

“Simon Strong has developed a weird and spooky body of work that draws upon mythological traditions. Called The Green Wood, the prints at John Buckley Gallery belong to a kind of digital Gothic, representing a fantasy land of hybrid beings, bedevilled hollows, erotic dryads, stumps and carcasses of trees that grow into figures who burn and rape, seductive gardens, blasted architecture and calming rain. In all, it makes a lurid convulsive photographic landscape of swoon and nightmare.”
