About this work
Gallery Wall (2022) is a series of inkjet prints and found objects exploring the notion of ‘nostalgia for the present’ and the instant camera’s ability to evoke nostalgia through imperfections such as soft-focus, vignetting, saturated colors, and other visual artefacts typical of film. The images document details found outside homes in Melbourne’s inner-northern suburbs, utilizing formal visual elements including color, line, and pattern to contribute to a nostalgic mood. The work is informed by the paintings of Howard Arkley and the writing by Chris McAuliffe detailing the history of Australian art in suburbia.
