Two Exhibitions on Display

Joel Chadwick - Wednesday, April 17, 2013

The Central Goldfields Art Gallery in Maryborough is currently hosting two photographic exhibitions.

Melbourne artist Peter Lambropoulos brings to Maryborough his exhibition titled Noise Noise Everywhere, comprising images that reveal to the viewer the infinite possibilities of imagined, manufactured and constructed worlds.

“From Daguerreotypes through to Photoshop, the history of photography has been filled with fraudsters, tricksters and illusionists and it is well within this tradition that I position myself as a photographer,” says Peter.

“The spaces and places I photograph are the product of an ongoing experimental sculptural practice; one that explores the aesthetic potential of everyday materials. What is intriguing about these images is that they occupy two spaces simultaneously — they are real and yet they are fakes.”

Complementing Peter’s exhibition is the work of Bendigo artist Carolyn Dew, with a collection of images titled Sacred Groves. Carolyn says she uses photography to contemplate on the material world that surrounds her.

“The material culture of our everyday life reflects our collective and personal attempts to interpret and make sense of the world we live in. A full expression of the anxiety, joy and ridiculousness of being human is articulated in the material environments we construct and inhabit.”

The exhibitions will open on Saturday, 13 April at 2pm and will be on display at the gallery until Sunday, 26 May 2013. The Central Goldfields Art Gallery is located in Neill Street, Maryborough, and is open from 10am to 4pm, Thursday to Sunday. Entry is free.
