Proximal Orbit is the show I’ve been waiting years to put on. My photographic and moving-image arts practice is centered upon outer space: what it feels like to comprehend it, how a layperson can feel closer to it. Making the work is my way of participating in the exploration of deep space and making the unfamiliar, familiar.

The works range from fine art prints – with the deep velvety texture of rag paper; video work – presented in a dedicated audio-visual room; and a piece that positions the photograph as experience rather than object. This show is for all ages, especially those with curious minds.

This solo exhibition is the most important show of my career. I’ve been developing the work for the last five years and now I finally have the chance to show it in the way I imagined it in the wonderful galleries of Praxis Artspace.

It is ambitious work. Each one is pre-planned and often re-worked again and again until the physics lines up with my idea or the subject matter cooperates. My prints often operate in the subtle tones closest to pure black, and take time to be understood as the viewer’s eyes adjust to the darkness – not unlike a stargazer. Because of this, the materials used have to be very particular. My printer tells me that “nobody else is making work like this.”

Donations will be put towards things like paint and rollers for turning the gallery into a dark abyss; gallery hire fees; materials for the looming off-the-wall piece that pushes the boundaries of my practice; the commissioning and production of a catalogue essay; and generally making sure that the show is as immersive as it should be.

The exhibition opens Thursday February 21 at 6pm and all are welcome. There will be a free artist talk on Saturday February 23. The show will be open during gallery open hours until March 22. It is free to attend! Venue is wheelchair accessible.

68-72 Gibson Street, BOWDEN, SA
Hours: Wednesday – Saturday 11am – 4pm or by appointment.

I encourage you to come and experience the works in person.

Hi, I’m a Visual Artist from South Australia working with photography and video. I completed a Bachelor of Visual Art (Photography) in 2012 and a Master of Visual Art in 2014 at the University of South Australia. My first ever solo exhibition was at FELTspace in 2014. In 2017 I was the SALA Artist-in-Residence at Flinders Medical Centre, creating new work based on Medical Imaging, and presented at the 2018 ASMIRT conference in Canberra. Most of my work is photographic, resulting in beautiful cotton rag prints, but I have recently made the necessary foray into the moving image and find that the results complement the still-image works perfectly.
