Gow Langsford Gallery presents International Photography, a stellar collection of photographic works from around the world.
The photographic medium is one of the most accessible artistic pursuits and the internationally acclaimed artists in International Photography present us with an engaging variety of different worlds.
Kim Joon’s famous painted nudes confidently claim their role as interrogator of reality and illusion while the emotionless portraits from Roland Fischer’s “Los Angeles Series” are eerily beautiful. Australian photographer Rebecca Hobbs’ focus here is on the animal world and our connection with it. The scenes she portrays are disconnected from the world they inhabit by the use of a pitch black backgrounds acting as a stage curtain behind the scene.
Anthony Goicolea employs the black and white photographic technique to discuss the ideas of human control and destruction. His images comment on power in the present and future and the destructive forces of both humanity and nature. Danwen Xing’s “DisCONNECTION” works examine e-trash as objects of 21st century modernity and Patricia Piccinini’s photographs seek to redefine the dualism of the artificial and the natural.
Each of the artists presented in International Photography have their own unique view of the world that they eloquently display in their work. The preview is timed to coincide with Gravity Festival Tuesday on Tuesday 2nd June.
