'Prospect, Refuge, Hazard'
Conceived in the optimistic ‘60s, and born into the more difficult 1970s, the now middle-aged Wellington urban motorway is the linking character in this series of urban landscapes. When reduced to “that thing in the backyard” or, “the other side of the office glazing” it somehow exhibits native Gen X sensibilities: apathetic, resilient, cognisant of its vulnerability. An uncertain future awaits.
'Prospect, Refuge, Hazard' is part of the group exhibition 'Four' at Photospace Gallery, 37 Courtenay Place, Wellington, running from 25th August to 16th September, 2017.
The tenuous nature of things
As we move through life, there is a constant grapple between loss and gain. We remain in a perpetual state of flux, moving forward and leaving behind what is gone.
Our friends and families are the most important things to us. Our children grow so fast that life moments are lost as we rapidly move from one moment to the next. This is the tenuous nature of life; transition, movement, loss and gain.
This series aims to capture the elements of this as it relates to my family, particularly my son Elliot; the snapshots of my memories of his growing body and my dreams of moments spent together.
