Artists’ attempts to envisage heaven on earth through painting landscapes is explored in works comprising rows of little houses built from discarded amateur pictures of idealized Nature, their facades incised with large letters to spell out mythical paradises such as Arcadia and Elysium. In Kenny’s vision the houses “become little streets or queues, identities waiting patiently dreaming”.

Chris Kenny’s recent work is being exhibited at England & Co from 12 November – 7 December.
