CURRENT EXHIBITION: VOLCANIC SALT: 'EXPLORING THE FLATLANDS'.
About 12 months ago I booked space at RRRTAG, with the idea of creating an exhibition with a very local focus. At that time the actual area was totally up in the air. But, after looking at Google Maps, a plan was hatched... Starting at the Gallery, I headed West until all of Lake Corangamite could be included - and then measure the distance needed, which was 30Km. And so a circle, with a 30Km radius, was drawn around the gallery. Then any area South of the highway excluded. The catchment area was now defined.
The Images where capture over time, sometimes the trips where planned and defined - but usually it was travel in a general direction. Often I had 'The Apprentice' in tow, and usually we both came back dirty and at times wet. But at all times the exploration was fun. Many locations where visited, but only a small number will make their way onto the walls of the gallery.
The outer galleries will have a different focus - with work gathered from recent travels to Norway, Iceland, Greenland and more....
I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible. I will be in the Gallery most of the open days, and am happy to talk about images, be it capture, processing or printing. And of course I would love to hear about peoples travels to remote and exotic locations.
On Friday 2nd of November at 7 PM, I will be hanging a large wallpaper, taken from the top of Red Rock Lookout. The doors will be open, and all are invited to come along as I hang it. Printed on a product called PhotoTEX, this material can be removed and leaves no trace. It will take 2hrs at the most. Any image can be turned into a wallpaper, so if you are interested then come out and I can talk you through the process.
