A Scenic View of Mountains Reflected in a Lake, 2010
Found posters on diasec

This work monumental installation by James Ireland extends his interest in landscape, nature and artifice in a sequence of overlapping images each of which is a different unrelated picturesque view of nature. Ireland’s interlocking series of images are reformed to make a new hybrid of idealised and spectacular landscape

Quiet Pleasures, 2011
Stainless steel, glass, vinyl print, quartz, pyrite

A second commission by Ireland is located in the waiting room in Radiotherapy. This installation uses highly reflective materials – mirrors, quartz crystals, and pyrite within a shiny metal framework. The natural rocks, along with the subtle colours of sunset cast over the white walls, form miniature three-dimensional landscapes
