Influenced by the life of Alfred Nobel, inventor of dynamite and instigator of various prizes, as well as the notion of the Renaissance Man and general themes of heroism and exploration, yet unable to understand nor do justice to such topics, Bridges instead makes nice little pieces of embroidery and miniature landscapes constructed from a combination of found materials and modeling materials. This new work depicts landscapes, which, via their visual relationship to craft and their incongruous methods of presentation, appear to allude to colonialism and the occult.
