Guy Grabowsky Yet Another ImageOpening: Wednesday 17 January, 6–8pm Dates: 17 January — 10 February 2018
“Yet Another Image” comprises a series of framed wall sized colour analogue c type photographic prints.
Through intervention, layers of texture are incorporated into the image, shifting its function by exposing its body. “Yet Another Image” is a contemplation of the construction and function of The Image, exploring it through human traces and examining its ability to depict the nature of reality.
“Yet Another Image” exhibits two varieties of image, combining painting and drawing with traditional photographic processes. Both images shift equally between the literal and the abstract whilst comprising signifiers in the composition which link back to the artist.
Guy Grabowsky explores the construction and function of images through photographic abstraction and intervention.
Still life, documentary and camera-less images are made by the artist using film with conventional and non-conventional analogue darkroom processes. Utilising a range of materials organic and inorganic, Guy integrates layers into the composition, creating new dynamics within the image and transforming its representational origin.
The prints, due to their scale, multilayered surfaces and curved edge often floating off the wall, convey a weight beyond that of a conventional photograph. This opens new dialogues between the viewer and the image.
