This exhibition revisits the early photographic works and practices of four alumni collected by the University in the 1990s, Melinda Burton, Felicia Kan, Catherine Rogers and Justene Williams.
Melinda Burton’s “Untitled” series is a self-portrait, in which she utilises a hybrid of analogue and digital photographic processes.
Felicia Kan grew up in Hong Kong and later moved to Sydney, where this new city’s space, nature and countryside were all strange and exotic to her and this how she presents it within, “Different Fields.” Typically, her photographs deny the horizon line and are not obviously of a particular place, revealing minimal slices of sky or landscape.
Catherine Rogers work also focuses primarily on landscape, using both conventional and unconventional methods to record and evoke the diversity the Australian landscape.
Justene Williams’ early works revolved around photography and utilised the ad-hoc nature of disposable cameras and one-hour printing.The photographs in “Neo Geo” reinterpret the banal interiors of shopping centres as blurred, atmospheric abstractions. The richness and glossiness of the photographs create romantic depictions of otherwise prosaic scenes.
All artists studied at Western Sydney University during the 1990s.
