Hilary Finch

When looking at Hilary Finch’s artworks, the German word Ruinenlust springs to mind. Literally translated as ruin-pleasure, this word succinctly conveys the delight we feel at encountering ruins – these collapsed palaces and temples of great civilizations reduced to rubble, put our anxieties about our present time into perspective, and remind us of the inevitable passage of all things. 

For Hilary Finch, who derives her photographic works both from single capture and composite images built over time, the physical and metaphysical landscape is blended. Atmospheric conditions are layered with geological formations and monolithic archaeological remnants to evoke a sense of the unknown and the intangible, where memory, past and future coalesce. 

It is as though Hilary Finch, to use a phrase by J W Dunn in his novel An Experiment with Time, is showing us “memories for the future”.
