PHOTO ALBUM BY PAUL DAVIES

Sophie Gannon Gallery

04 Jun 2024 – 22 Jun 2024

The exhibition Photo Album draws on the use of photography in our everyday life to enhance and manipulate past events.

The layered paintings in the exhibition combine personal memories with digital photos from my time in California and my family's return to the East Coast of Australia.

Absent of human forms, these memories centre on the similarities in landscape and architecture between the two locations.

With the gradual fading of these memories in my mind, it’s hard not to be increasingly reliant on the digital images for validation.

Consequently, the paintings are approached from various viewpoints, producing an overall feeling of place rather than a direct likeness of a location.
