Artist presented by Tom Eccles

Liz Deschenes

3 July - 19 September

10H00 - 19H30

My artistic practice has been completely immersed in the photographic medium. As an exhibiting artist, curator and educator, I have worked to expand the dialogue surrounding photography. I believe that there is a schism between the way it has been practised and how it’s been considered. Colour has often been the ‘subject’ of my work. Initially, I utilised landscape images as an entry point to discuss self-reflexive concepts of the medium, while simultaneously attempting to expand the viewer’s experience of place by creating site-specific photographic installations. These installations considered the entire space and became reconfigured at each new venue. The monochrome has been apparent since the beginning of my work. The monochrome and other self-reflexive practices do not have a deep history in the photographic medium, mainly because of the medium’s inherent ability to record and document. ‘Painting’s rejection of depiction has condemned photography to depict.’
I am interested in photography cultivating a self-reflexive dialogue, while simultaneously reflecting the world at large, and utilising a vocabulary that integrates concept with form.
