Exhibition Work

NMIT Staff Shows          (2003-2009)

NMIT staff exhibited in the A-Space gallery at the beginning of each year... This provided students with a unique chance to see the work that Visual Arts Staff produced.

Some examples of work I exhibited in these staff shows...








Solo and Group Exhibitions ....

Phantasm          (2006)

A group exhibition held with Greg Neville and George Alamidis at the Lab X Gallery in 2006

Through stains, shadows and rust, these three artists explored the face through visual forms to reveal a world of dreams, nightmares and puzzles....

Whiteout           (2005)

Vertigo              (2004)

A joint exhibition held at Lab X Gallery.

My images were taken on the site of the Bolte Bridge under construction. They are part of an ongoing project that I had undertaken in the industrial areas of Melbourne over a long period of time. The investigation of formal, abstract and compositional elements has been a substantial pert of this exploration, along with the visual impact of these structures on the environment. The images were made during 'non construction' periods, which adds a strange sense of quiet stillness to the work, a feeling at odds with the 'normal' perceptions of such structures when completed
A 4' x 5" monorail camera was used to realise this project and the negatives were developed in a Pyro formula.
Prints were 32" x 40" digital Type C (Lambda).

Greg Neville was a co-exhibitor and used a plastic Holga camera (a child's toy camera) to record the monumental scale of the New York skyline.

Natural              (1994)

An exhibition held at ACPAC (Australian College of Photography Art & Communication)

In Industrial Light     (1993)

This exhibition was held at the Photographers' Gallery in Melbourne in 1993.

The images in this exhibition explore structural and sculptural inter-relationships as well as the impact industrial forms have on the environment.
The title 'In Industrial Light' refers to a pervasive quality of bright light that is contained in the tonal relationships and the structural form of the images.
They were made in the industrial areas of Melbourne, Melbourne Ports and the Western suburbs.
They were produced from 4"x5" negatives and the prints were archivally processed silver gelatin (darkroom) prints based on fine print processes and traditions.
This period was a marker in terms of (the apparent) demise of traditional analogue methods and the emergence of increasingly refined digital equivalents. As such, I felt it was important to celebrate the strengths of the darkroom and the fine print tradition for this show.

Environs           (1976)
Thought it might be a good idea to add some of my exhibition work as part of the blog...

I have added an Exhibition page to the blog... that means I had better start with my first exhibition...
It is rather disturbing to think that was in 1976 and such a long time ago.
The exhibition title was 'Environs' and was a joint show with Melbourne photographer, Byron Nichols in a galley in Sorrento and the images were made in various Port Phillip Bay locations such as Mud Island and the coastal environs of Cape Schank.
Here are 4 images from the exhibition...
