In her ominous representational and abstract landscape photographs, Devon Oder manipulates the image through over exposure, multiple exposure, and lighting filters. Oder references nostalgia through the use of antiquated photographic methods such as cyanotype contact prints, lithograph on cotton rag paper, and Polaroid film. In some of her series, Oder distorts the image through vibrant psychedelic colors, while in others, the landscape is abstracted through direct sunlight. Oder's work looks back at the tradition of landscape photography while also presenting an apocalyptic future.
Oder’s work has been exhibited in solo and group shows at Regina Rex, New York, Gallery Lara, Tokyo, Alexys Schwartz Projects, California, and as part of an Art Basel pop up exhibition in Miami.
