Double Vision brings together the inspiring works of two very different artists – yet is also a celebration of powerfully shared themes.
For both artists, the exploration of pattern and structure in the natural environment is a key element. Stubbles’ richly tactile, yet painterly, abstracted landscapes and Morecroft’s seductively detailed photographs are an intriguing combination.
Richard Morecroft may be best known for his work on television – especially with his SBS show Letters and Numbers. For several years now he has been exhibiting his distinctive landscape photographs that create a sense of immersion in the environment.
Richard has been dealing with points of view for many years, particularly while with ABCTV, for most of his working life. In the main they have been the views of others. But now he is addressing his own points of view through his unique photographic representations of the Australian Landscape.
Richard has literally and physically turned the notion of landscape on its head to present jet-stream-like ‘portraits’ of the ‘landscape’. The two terms are iconic, for not only are they two of the major genres of photography but also dictate the shape of a painting or photograph.
All Photographs are available unframed for $550.
