Parallels of Place looks at the intersection between aesthetic concerns of landscape imagery and the psychological impact of place. Bringing together a unique combination of artists, varying in age, gender and art practices the exhibition presents new perspectives on place. Lyn Nixon, Megan Christie, Ian Williams and David Ledger explore alternative perceptions of landscape and change through photography, furniture, painting and installation. Christie’s furniture and sculptural practice examines landscape, sustainability and beliefs about how we respond to the natural environment. Nixon combines photography, printmaking and installation to explore the fragility of existence, focusing on notions of impermanence and uncertainty. Ledger and Williams investigate experience and familiarity within the virtual space. Ledger’s practice is focused on ideas of virtual space and place representation, while Williams’ work examines how the computer screen acts as both a window and barrier between illusion and the physical world. Parallels of Place brings together a body of works that reflect the artists shared interests in the role of remediated imagery in representing, simulating or creating place.
