Rural Facade Photography by Sandy McLea


Each mixed media photographic work in South African fine art photographer Sandy McLea’s Rural Façade series is composed of photographs of graffiti from urban areas layered atop a juxtaposed abandoned rural scene. McLea uses paper tole technique to layer repeated selections of an image to create a three-dimensional effect. This technique physically lifts the graffiti off a building’s facade, calling attention to its displacement and reframing the murals to reveal them as meaningful works of art.  Parts of the rural scene are also raised slightly to complement the effect and bring each work together as a compositional whole.


Each work in Rural Façade is part of a 7-edition closed series and is signed and numbered by the artist, and pricing alters based on the remaining editions available. The artist considers the specific matting and framing featured in this series an important aspect of the composition and thus each arrives framed and ready for hanging. Two of the works are panoramic, sized 42” x 22.5” x 2.5”, as shown, and pricing alters for these larger and more involved works as indicated.
