The Ever series forms part of an ongoing body of work by New York based photo artist Simone Douglas and coincides with Sydney’s Art Month 2011 Festival.

Ever is an investigation of photography in relation to the sublime, excess, immateriality and the perceptual uncertainty of the photograph itself.

The Ever images mark small events as potential acts of immensity. The images play with the ambiguity of appearances, utilising the contradiction between objective and subjective vision to explore the poetic aspect of photography.

Ever alludes to a mythical and spiritual relationship with the landscape and forces of nature as proximity and distance collapse. Crystalline, elemental cloudscapes, ruptures and fissures in the land form these cryptic images which are ‘real’ shots, but abstract in appearance and idea.

The works are micro in scale yet macro in vision and concept. Ocular perception, light and duration inform the conceptual basis for these images. The artist is looking at different modes of visual knowledge, and at how notions of image, perception and illusion can inform a view beyond site and seeing.

Simone’s work will also be exhibited in Photography and Place, curated by Judy Annear at AGNSW from 17th March – 29th May 2011.

For further information and high resolution images, please contact Rhianna Walcott rhianna@artereal.com.au or phone 02 9818 7473.
