GAZE

the landscape: implacable and enduring elements that may yet outlast us all.

About

In a world where speed is at a premium, where the instant is celebrated and lives are increasingly dominated by fleeting Facebook ʻmomentsʼ, the art of the long glance or lingering gaze is increasingly rare.

This exhibition explores the idea of the landscape as more than something to be captured in the moment – rather, it is a series of implacable and enduring, almost graphic elements that may yet outlast us all.

In the face of these long landscape moments, our attempts to control the environment through construction often result in the man made seeming more transient than the ever changing landscape.

Craig Riddington originally hails from Petersfield in the United Kingdom. He studied photography at the prestigious London College of Printing. Initially a music and editorial photographer, Craig has now worked as a commercial photographer in both Australia and the UK. His move into landscape photography came about after moving to Tasmania and meeting and being inspired by, the great landscape photographer, Michael Kenna.

Working in black and white, Craigʼs landscape photography seeks to simplify the subject matter. graphic lines are further enhanced by the use of contrast, composition and long exposures.

OFFICIAL OPENING:
Wednesday 20 April 2016 @ 6:00pm

MEET THE ARTIST:
Craig Riddington will be present most days at the exhibition and will happily guide visitors through the exhibition.
