Megalopolis Landscapes Exhibition

The world is flat….right?

Of course not…so why do we take “flat”, or boring old 2D photographs?

Look around you, what’s missing from these photos…uhm, well, just about most everything that we could see if we looked about.

“MEGALOPOLIS – LANDSCAPES”

Exhibition at Brunswick Street Galleries Fitzroy

This canvas wasamong other large canvases up to 2m in size, which featured in my exhibition at Brunswick Street  Gallery ( www.bsgart.com.au) in Fitzroy, from Friday 22 October, running to 4th November 2010.

The image “On The Beach” which advertised my exhibition, references Nevile Shute’s 1957 post‐apocalyptic novel, set in Melbourne. An aircraft is searching for the source of a mysterious and incomprehensible radio signal, fires off defensive flares to avoid attack from automatic air defences which continue to run off generators as long as the fuel lasts.

My involvement with renewable energy projects invokes a natural resonance with the inevitable march of entropy found in both the natural landscape and urban decay, often reflecting the bewilderment of youth coming to terms with the process through rites of beautification evinced in aerosol.

My training as an engineer and mathematician has led to meticulously exploring the technique of digital photography in all its nuances. With my camera I record fleeting instants in the timeline of new development,  progress, history, decay and rebirth of Megalopolis.

My artwork is intertwined with entropy, as we all are…

  1. I stumbled across this exhibition by chance, it was one of the most amazing exhibits I have ever encountered! I am a second year student at NMIT and have been looking out for an artist of inspiration and write up a brief biographical summary, exhibition career etc. Would it be alright if I were to write about you and your work?

    • Hi Emerald
      Glad you like the images. I am inspired by the decay and rebirth of the Megalopolis (Melbourne, the largest city I have lived in). I’m a country boy myself, with a home on Philip Island. I’d be happy to collaborate with you and will send you an e-mail with my contact details.
