“A REAL TREAT for me was to visit a warehouse, somewhere at the back of Cheltenham, which is a shared space, with the estate of renowned Australian artist ROGER KEMP, the legacy left to his daughter Michel, partner of GRAEME ROWE.
Graeme stores his massive painting there too.” Graeme Wilkie

UP FOR EASTER…
The Long awaited
BUSH THEATRE by ROBERT ASHTON 3rd – 25th April
Opens EASTER Saturday at 3:00pm
I have been photographing the bush around my home for over 40 years, always looking for new ways to engage with its arbitrary and indiscriminate manifestations.
For this series of photographs I built an ultra large format camera to make wetplate collodion images on glass plates.
The complex process of making each plate balances a very considered and meticulous preparation with the serendipity of the moment and the material.
In these images the bush becomes a stage. The backdrop isolates, reveals, conceals and juxtaposes to create a formal visual tension with the surrounding random chaos.RA.
