Catalog accompanies the exhibition at University Gallery, University of Massachusetts Amherst from September 14 - October 25, 2002. A collection of Rideal’s works with floral, vegetal, and organic influences that feel both familiar and mystifying. From Emmanuel Cooper’s essay: “Rideal’s work touches on both the form of objects - be they plants or woven fabrics - and on the photographic process and its ability to imitate, to yield simulacra that takes on an independence quite apart from the subject shown. In seeking to explore the nature of things Rideal offers alternate ways of looking at the natural and the fabricated in which one is intimately bound up with the other.”
