Still is quiet yet unsettled. Leigh Merrill digitally constructs prints and videos of imaginary but familiar feeling places. Utilizing warehouse imagery that goes on and on, the changes in the images are subtle – a cloud shifts slowly across a parking lot. They suggest a visual hyperbole – an embellished scene circulating around a small fascinating detail. The seamless quality of these photo-based works slowly unravels, giving viewers a sense of curiosity as these hard to place street scenes shift in unfamiliar ways.
