Gregory Ackland’s photographic series ‘Habitus’ references the traditions of Romanticism, but Ackland’s photographs also reflect the idea of a retreat inwards. A contemplation of the experience of place elevates these images beyond the picturesque to highlight an emotional response to the landscape.

Gregory is a head of photography at the Adelaide School for the Arts, and a talented photographic artist. If you get an opportunity to hear Greg speak at an artist talk, you will enjoy he deep love and understanding of art.

Feb 19 – Mar 19 2014 at the Hill Smith Gallery – First Floor Gallery, 113 Pirie Street, Adelaide SA 5000

Smoke and the Port

This exhibition celebrates the product of combustion, the vaporous gasses and particles, the aromatic, the cure, the pale to greyish blue to thick black, the elemental nature of smoke. The artists have played with the properties of smoke, the smoke of fleeting illusion, of mirrors, the unreal and transitory, of concealment and screening. Read more »

Marc D Bowden - it's about time

Marc D Bowden – it’s about time

Marc D Bowden’s “it’s about time” exhibition is up and  running in the Adelaide Arcade for this Fringe festival.

here are Marc’s words on his exhibition:

“This series comprises various typologies: ‘wall’, ‘tree’, ‘rubble’, and ‘spiritual place’, among others. They were taken in 2013 on the New Caledonian islands of Ouvéa, Mouli, Maré and Île des Pins, which are mostly inhabited by indigenous Kanak.

France annexed New Caledonia in 1853. 100 years later the first political party to involve Kanaks appeared. After New Caledonian Congressional elections in May 2014, its Territorial Congress will be free to call a referendum on independence. Read more »
