Exhibition Opening of Available Light: imagining more than we see
to follow Ireland's remarks
Exhibition Dates: November 30 - January 26, 2014
Artist, writer, and curator, Peter Ireland to discuss the works included in the group show Available Light: imagining more than we see. The exhibition is an extensive reflection on the element that makes the foundations of the media possible- light. Included in the show are works by Laurence Aberhart, Mark Adams [image above], Fiona Amundsen, Wayne Barrar, Richard Barraud [Estate], Andrew Beck, Peter Black, Rhondda Bosworth, Joyce Campbell, Ben Cauchi, Richard Collins, Lisa Crowley, Hayden Fritchley, Frank Hofmann [Estate], Nikolai Kokx, Adrienne Martyn, Anne Noble, Max Oettli, Fiona Pardington, Trent Parke [Australia], Peter Peryer, Steve Rood, Andrew Ross, Haruhiko Sameshima, Justine Varga [Australia], and Len Wesney.
Together work by these artists explores the power of light in an image and the way we respond to place based on its qualities. Light can elevate and transform, open and expose space, but its compliment, shadow also has powerful effects on the sentiments within an image. Darkness can obscure and add drama by rendering subjects mysterious. Then there are techniques that thanks to technology can go beyond human site; night-vision, infrared and ultraviolet light capture more than the eye can see to expand the limitations of visibility, perception, and the photographic media. This exhibition explores all of these territories and can be remotely experienced through a downloadable pdf catalogue.
