Modernity and the light in which we see it is a long-standing theme in John Riddy's work, ranging from the modernist architecture of 1930s Britain through to the architecture of Le Corbusier in Chandigarh. This exhibition of new works from the past two years consists of large scale colour photographs which depict a variety of disparate views similarly characterised by notions of progress; London's Victorian railway arches, a tree local to Riddy's studio newly lit with the most up to date LED street lights, a view across Lower Manhattan encompassing the High line, the new Whitney Museum of American Art and Ground Zero. Metropolitan ambition is intrinsic to the subject matter and whilst this theme is constant it is described sequentially in images that chart changing angles of view, spatial progression or altering light and weather. The viewer is invited to consider formal and temporal relationships both within and between still images carefully juxtaposed.
