Stop. Motion. | Jessica Dorloff
Launceston-based emerging artist Jessica Dorloff’s exhibition Stop. Motion. explores the image/motion relationship and the materiality of film. The exhibition features a series of photographic prints that are exhibited alongside a digital video. Jessica created the works for the show by appropriating footage from cinema. Film stills have been used to create photographic prints and stop motion animations that highlight the process required to construct, in the traditional cinematic sense, the illusion of moving images. Clearly influenced by film and photographic theory, Jessica attempts to capture the energy and drama of cinema within a still frame while revealing the nature of the illusion. Born in Hobart, Jessica completed a Bachelor of Contemporary Arts in Launceston, graduating with first class honours from the University of Tasmania in 2013. Stop. Motion. at PhotoAccess Huw Davies Gallery is Jessica’s first exhibition outside of Tasmania. Catalogue
