Kenny delights in the rugged seascapes of the British Isles where he salvages washed up bottles, traces of seaweed, barnacles and shells. Flotsam, jetsam, and weathered detritus are assembled meticulously and then scanned on a small glass plate to unfurl a watery underworld of sandy sea beds, cool shallows and dark caves. Kenny’s O Hanami series, names after the Japanese festival is inspired by the change of season, and the short-lived beauty of cherry blossom as it rides on the wind.
