"it’s a fountain"
Opening: Wednesday 4 February, 6-8pm
Dates: 4 – 21 February 2015
The gentle embrace of the photographic image, bound by its laws and immaterial tensions, gives Arini Byng warranty to explore a distinctive pictorial game in her new suite of works, it’s a fountain. Prying materials, textures, light and objects into a slippery formalism, the Melbourne-based artist’s new works seem open to the wind – their formal and material cues at once realised, untethered and malleable. Amid such an interplay, Byng’s photographic environments might be read as transmissions, fleeting moments in which the image finds itself within itself.
