HUW DAVIES GALLERY 11 September –12 October 2008
Huw Davies: Everything under the sun … shows aspects of the life and work of Huw Davies. Huw was involved in community photographic projects and group and solo exhibitions during the 1980s and early 1990s in Canberra and Sydney. The title comes from Huw’s words to promote Of a Political Nature, a May 1986 PhotoAccess exhibition curated by him:
Everything under the sun is out there in the landscape, from the sublime experience of spiritual unity with nature to the most brutal exploitation of mother earth and its resources. Landscape photography presents the artist with a limitless canvas, rich in tone, colour, texture and allegory.
It also refers to the remarkable range of interests Huw pursued in his work and the exhibitions and projects he was associated with in his lifetime.
