Dumb-founded – Kathleen Fisher

16th April 2009 | Exhibitions
Orange Blossom Bride - Kathleen Fisher

Orange Blossom Bride - Kathleen Fisher

Kathleen’s haunting exploration of the world of mannequins includes meticulously hand-coloured (in Photoshop) images captured over a period of years with toy, 35mm film and cheap digital cameras.

Dumb-founded explores the fate of clothing mannequins after they’ve expired their fashion used-by dates. Some are overhauled or snapped up by collectors. Others are demoted to junk stores or displays in small-town museums. And the utterly wretched are discarded as a jumble of limbs. Whatever happens, their role is revised — instead of telling stories about fashion, they act out new scenarios, ones with entirely new meanings. Even though this series is documentary, my camera is overtly subjective, and the result is a theme of femininity … tragic, dissatisfied, exaggerated and totally fake.” (more…)

With this selection he is aiming to create “a sense of recognition with some things that are familiar and a feeling of curiosity for those that are not”. (more…)

An exhibition by eleven prominent ACT-based photographers will open at the Tuggeranong Arts Centre on Tuesday 3 February at 6pm.

Each photographer was invited to submit just one of their photographs that holds a special significance for them. With no size restrictions, each one will be presented unframed, borderless and pinned to the wall. The eleven shots chosen are particularly strong and provide some important insights into what photographers seek in their own work.

The exhibition will be opened by TAC Director, Domenic Mico and runs to Thursday 26 February. (more…)

Canson Infinity BFK Rives

19th January 2009 | Papers

This is a beautiful paper. Canson claim a 500 year history for Rives BFK as a traditional printmaking and drawing paper. This mould-made, 100% cotton, 310gsm paper has a vellum texture and a warmth that adds class to images that will benefit from its subtle but distinctive character. (Where more neutrality is required Arches Velin Museum Rag is probably preferable.) (more…)
