Photos from the Private View
Peter and David is a two-part contrasting photographic installation which explores notions surrounding representation, beauty and youth. The first part – The Study of Peter Pan – is a series of nine photographic portraits in which the camera follows the subject through a 360 degree turn. It aims to capture someone at a point in adolescent development between childhood and adulthood, and to freeze that moment, the title of the work referencing the well-known mythological character of Peter Pan. The second part – The Study of David – is a site-specific montage of photographic images, depicting a replicate of Michelango’s figure of the biblical hero, David. Through the process of editing and layering, David's body is gently and subtly remoulded and transformed from the original into something new.
On Saturday 19 October, 14.30-16.00, Lee Milne and I will be at the gallery, talking about our work (anyone is free to come along - no booking required).
