in Flux – Nadia McLeish

7th October 2014 | Exhibitions
Come away with me - Nadia McLeish

Come away with me – Nadia McLeish

Nadia’s in Flux is both a personal and impressionistic view of the Braidwood winter landscape and its features.

“Braidwood is my home and, for this series, my inspiration. The natural landscape is varied and changes markedly with the seasons, being particularly stark in winter. Old farmsteads dot the hills, filled with mementoes of the early settlers. Sometimes the corner of an old building reveals a tableau of objects frozen in time; past activity remembered only in detritus.

“Time moves on, like the blur of hedgerows whooshing past unnoticed in the rush to get somewhere. Photography brings the instant into focus. It reveals and defies the flux of time, and tantalizes with glimpses of the eternal present.”

The exhibition opens at 6pm on Friday 10th October at Altenburg & Co in Braidwood and runs to 9th November.


Inner Necessity – Suzie Edwards

6th August 2014 | Exhibitions
The Breath is Short, The Sigh is Long - Suzie Edwards

The Breath is Short, The Sigh is Long – Suzie Edwards

Suzie Edwards’ Inner Necessity explores the seemingly non-relationship between images:

“At times there appears to be a relationship where logically there should not be one. Subject/time wise there is no link and there is no narrative. Some images seem to naturally assert themselves no matter what space they occupy – some stand alone and carry their message and yet others need to have a connection and context in order to resonate with the viewer.

“The results of my creative play are here for you to view, question and ultimately think about. You will all bring something of yourself to my images and you will all leave with something – and for every one of you, it will be different.”

The exhibition opens at 6pm on Thursday, 7th August at the Huw Davies Gallery, Manuka Arts Centre and runs to 24th August.


Circus Dreams – Christine Rufflet

12th June 2014 | Exhibitions

La piste aux étoiles – Christine Rufflet

Christine describes her second solo exhibition of photographs as follows:

Circus Dreams is a journey for the senses. It brings together photographs from a real circus in France and others from Le Musée du Cirque et de l’Illusion as well as lights and objects. It is not an exhibition about circus as you know it, but more an invitation to immerse in a dreamy atmosphere where colours and contours mix to reveal shapes and silhouettes that belong to a different world. I have always been fascinated by circus life and what happens once the curtain is closed. May Circus Dreams be like a glimpse behind the curtain of an enchanted circus…”

The exhibition, imaginatively presented alongside playful theatrical props, is on display at the Huw Davies Gallery, Manuka Arts Centre until 29th June.


After 200 Years

5th June 2014 | Exhibitions

After 200 Years is a photographic exhibition showing at Parliament House, Canberra as part of 50th anniversary celebrations of the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies (AIATSIS).

Over 50,000 images were collected in partnership with communities throughout Australia, documenting the different lifestyles of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people during the late 1980s living in remote and urban communities. These images reflect the unique relationship between AIATSIS and communities, the significance for communities in being partners in research that is important to them and the value of the resulting collections.

The exhibition is showing adjacent to the Presiding Officer’s Exhibition Area on the House of Representatives side and runs to Sunday 13th July.

Natural Views – Fanny Karouta-Manasse

Banksia speciosa – Fanny Karouta-Manasse

Fanny’s Natural Views photographic exhibition is showing as part of Canberra Centenary celebrations.

“In this show I chose only images of Australian plants or birds taken in the ACT. This is not only because of the Canberra’s centenary but also because nature in this city is at everyone’s doorstep. However, the plants pictured are not all native to the ACT or NSW. Most of them, like the banksia (Banksia speciosa from Western Australia), were taken at the Australian National Botanic Gardens where I enjoy to walk and learn about the native flora.

“I often like my images to show a different view of our natural world in order to induce people to look further, and encourage them to observe more closely for a deeper understanding and appreciation of our living environment.”

The exhibition is on display at the Kaori Gallery, Canberra City Framing until 7th December.
