Andy Sewell's series The Heath navigates a physical space, which is compelling and contradictory and an interesting space within the landscape tradition. His pictures deal with the effect that place has on us as well as the effect that we have on it. Concerns common to the Romantic artists and poets of the nineteenth century who used Hampstead Heath as subject and inspiration. Without being overtly referential his work feels engaged with this Romantic tradition while being firmly placed in the present. A contemporary sensibility filtering ancient concerns. He creates a view neither sentimental nor idealised but one that discovers the quite and at times disquieting poetry found by looking closely at what surrounds us. The Heath was published in July 2011.
