Desolation wilderness: the continued journal of a sequence of events occurring over a short period of time and in a more specific location in space.
Desolation Wilderness is part of an ongoing project looking at ‘landscape and memory’ - our relationship with the environment, effects we have on the world and space around us and in turn, its profound effect on our own memory and emotions.
There is a place called Desolation Wilderness. It is real. It does exist. This collection of drawings is based on the notion of the ‘idea’ of a place, assumptions that are made about the nature of its existence and where its boundaries lay.
Each landscape is part of a journey through a new and unfamiliar environment, exploring the intersection between physical experience and memory.
Based in London, Freelance illustrator Claire Scully works in pen, ink and digital with a heavy focus on drawing. Her work explores a variety of themes including the relationship between people and the environment.
