Into Blue - Exhibition of New work by Katherine Wood

BY Red Hill Gallery | 16-Apr-2013
Katherine’s original artworks, like nature, have the ability to evoke deep emotions from within. The energy and light captured by her artworks are constantly changing – almost along with nature. And just like the elements, even when the work is ‘finished’, they go on changing according to the state of mind or even the mood of the viewer. As the eye follows through the painting, there is a sense of imminent energy and exciting tension which allows one’s own imagination the freedom to play.

A Selection by Aaron Citti

BY Catherine Asquith Gallery | 12-Apr-2013
Aaron Citti was born in Adelaide, Australia 1979. He received his first camera at the young age of 5 and spent his childhood years enthusiastically taking photographs of nature at every possible opportunity. His parents were avid travellers, frequenting the remote outback areas of Australia. These early childhood holidays allowed him to experience the rawest parts of the Australian landscape, capturing his heart and igniting his passion for the photographic art form. Aaron’s intent is straightforward: “my photographs are of scenes taken to arouse interest, conversation, to stir you, to make you wonder. I want to capture an impression as though you had just walked into the scene - like a film, paused at a dramatic moment– you know something is about to happen but you don’t know what. The scene is full of drama and mystery, it's full of energy and stillness at the same precise moment and it beckons you to fill in the gaps; create the story or finish it. “What is about to happen?, What has just happened?” My photograph becomes your story.”

The exhibition comprises a collection of large-format solo works from each artist, in addition to a new series of collaborative works in which Kat and Beci took turns working on each piece and observing the results as their styles collided and coalesced. Themes of hiding and concealment resonate throughout the works; favourite objects and treasures adorn and veil other formal and material elements. A lucky dip process formed the crux of each artwork, with words pulled from a jar dictating the subject matter.
