From McConnell’s ongoing flower work, a theme he has returned to again and again, this time a quietly captured meadow, location unknown. Almost overlooked, an overexposed frame on a photographic contact sheet, when scanned, reveals an homage to the perspective of Eggleston’s Field of Flowers and acid colours reminiscent of the hand-tinted photographs of the controversial Czech artist Jan Saudek, both of whose work the artist discovered as a teenager. This print is made from that original scan giving it a soft, pixelated and imperfect resonance, a gentle reminder that beauty lies everywhere.
