PhotoAccess 25th Anniversary Print Portfolio
This limited edition print portfolio is 16 images donated by artists associated with PhotoAccess as board members, board advisors, staff, course tutors and exhibiting members to commemorate the PhotoAccess 25th Anniversary in September 2009. Macquarie Editions printed the portfolio with UltraChrome HDR pigment inks on 310 gsm Canson Infinity BFK Rives 100% rag in a numbered edition of 25, with one artist’s proof. Boxed sets have been acquired by private collectors and Canberra Museum and Art Gallery. Seven boxed sets remain for sale. Images numbered 11 to 20/25 are for sale individually and a number have been acquired by private collectors. Proceeds from the sale of the edition help PhotoAccess continue its work providing community access to the photo based arts through exhibitions, courses and special projects.

The portfolio would not have been possible without our supporters:

Macquarie Editions: Stephen Best is a PhotoAccess member, master digital printmaker and owner of Macquarie Editions. His first solo exhibition, Coast, was shown in the HUW DAVIES GALLERY in 2007. Stephen has printed a significant number of exhibition images for PhotoAccess members and other artists around Australia and is renowned for the quality of his work.

Abell’s Kopi Tiam Restaurant at Manuka: Lorna Sim is a partner in Abell’s Kopi Tiam restaurant and a long-standing member of PhotoAccess. She and Abell Ong have supported and shown photography in the restaurant for many years and are very pleased to be associated with PhotoAccess and the commemorative print portfolio.

Barbie Robinson: Barbie Robinson is a member and staff member of PhotoAccess. Her exhibition 256 Shades of Grey was shown in the HUW DAVIES GALLERY in 2005. She is supporting the edition in memory of her mother, Beb Bartholomew. Beb came to openings at PhotoAccess and sat happily in 'her' chair at the front desk sipping champagne and people-watching. She loved encouraging and supporting people she saw as 'having a go'. She had a special affection for PhotoAccess, observing a supportive environment for both its staff and its artists. Ed Whalan was her particular pin-up boy because of his role in introducing Barbie to the intricacies and boundless delights of photography.

The PhotoAccess 25th Anniversary Print Portfolio was exhibited in the PhotoAccess HUW DAVIES GALLERY from 18 March - 14 April 2010. [inline:25th_combined_lr.pdf=Download Catalogue]

HUW DAVIES GALLERY 18 March–4 April
[inline:2010_highway tales0003.jpg]
 
Lorna Sim’s images are always strikingly beautiful and meticulously composed; her creative skills are reflected in the many awards she has received in recent years. Lorna’s work has been seen in PhotoAccess and other group exhibitions and small solo shows, but this is her first solo exhibition in the HUW DAVIES GALLERY.

When we discussed the idea of an exhibition with Lorna we had in mind the work we were familiar with—dancers, portraits, atmospheric street scenes, interiors and landscapes. We were unprepared for the images she showed us. The Trucking images had immediate dramatic impact and showed a coherent, unusual vision. Clearly they came out of a deep fascination for the subject. As an artist in residence Lorna was able to consult with us to develop the series and the exhibition came together quickly in collaboration with Stephen Best of Macquarie Editions, who optimised the impact of the images in beautiful inkjet prints.

Lorna’s career has been dominated by her interest in image making and storytelling. She worked in film and television for some years, and is now a restaurateur and very busy photographer.

Trucking is a powerful statement about the industry and, although we don’t see them, the men and women it involves. Sim experiences obvious trepidation when she gets up close to the massive machines but she is intrigued by the people inside them and the lives they live. The placement of trucks on the road and the landscape setting point to emotional responses: threatened; the excitement of the journey; admiration for a long distance driver heading off into a long night; the truckie as a modern day working hero. There are wet days (which she particularly likes as subject matter), the portent and imminent challenge of heavy skies, long stretches of road and helpful signposts to give physical context to the journey.

Considering Lorna Sim’s interest in the people involved in or affected by the trucking industry it was fitting that the exhibition should be dedicated to the late Bob Knight, whose accidental death last year shocked everyone.

We are delighted to present Lorna Sim’s Trucking in the HUW DAVIES GALLERY at the Manuka Arts Centre.

Considering Lorna Sim’s interest in the people involved in or affected by the trucking industry it was fitting that the exhibition should be dedicated to the late Bob Knight, whose accidental death last year shocked everyone.

We are delighted to present Lorna Sim’s Trucking in the HUW DAVIES GALLERY at the Manuka Arts Centre.

PhotoAccess 25th Anniversary Print Portfolio
This limited edition print portfolio is 16 images donated by artists associated with PhotoAccess as board members, board advisors, staff, course tutors and exhibiting members to commemorate the PhotoAccess 25th Anniversary in September 2009. Macquarie Editions printed the portfolio with UltraChrome HDR pigment inks on 310 gsm Canson Infinity BFK Rives 100% rag in a numbered edition of 25, with one artist’s proof. Boxed sets have been acquired by private collectors and Canberra Museum and Art Gallery. Seven boxed sets remain for sale. Images numbered 11 to 20/25 are for sale individually and a number have been acquired by private collectors. Proceeds from the sale of the edition help PhotoAccess continue its work providing community access to the photo based arts through exhibitions, courses and special projects.

The portfolio would not have been possible without our supporters:

Macquarie Editions: Stephen Best is a PhotoAccess member, master digital printmaker and owner of Macquarie Editions. His first solo exhibition, Coast, was shown in the HUW DAVIES GALLERY in 2007. Stephen has printed a significant number of exhibition images for PhotoAccess members and other artists around Australia and is renowned for the quality of his work.

Abell’s Kopi Tiam Restaurant at Manuka: Lorna Sim is a partner in Abell’s Kopi Tiam restaurant and a long-standing member of PhotoAccess. She and Abell Ong have supported and shown photography in the restaurant for many years and are very pleased to be associated with PhotoAccess and the commemorative print portfolio.

Barbie Robinson: Barbie Robinson is a member and staff member of PhotoAccess. Her exhibition 256 Shades of Grey was shown in the HUW DAVIES GALLERY in 2005. She is supporting the edition in memory of her mother, Beb Bartholomew. Beb came to openings at PhotoAccess and sat happily in 'her' chair at the front desk sipping champagne and people-watching. She loved encouraging and supporting people she saw as 'having a go'. She had a special affection for PhotoAccess, observing a supportive environment for both its staff and its artists. Ed Whalan was her particular pin-up boy because of his role in introducing Barbie to the intricacies and boundless delights of photography.

The PhotoAccess 25th Anniversary Print Portfolio was exhibited in the PhotoAccess HUW DAVIES GALLERY from 18 March - 14 April 2010. [inline:25th_combined_lr.pdf=Download Catalogue]

HUW DAVIES GALLERY 18 March–4 April

Lorna Sim’s images are always strikingly beautiful and meticulously composed; her creative skills are reflected in the many awards she has received in recent years. Lorna’s work has been seen in PhotoAccess and other group exhibitions and small solo shows, but this is her first solo exhibition in the HUW DAVIES GALLERY.

When we discussed the idea of an exhibition with Lorna we had in mind the work we were familiar with—dancers, portraits, atmospheric street scenes, interiors and landscapes. We were unprepared for the images she showed us. The Trucking images had immediate dramatic impact and showed a coherent, unusual vision. Clearly they came out of a deep fascination for the subject. As an artist in residence Lorna was able to consult with us to develop the series and the exhibition came together quickly in collaboration with Stephen Best of Macquarie Editions, who optimised the impact of the images in beautiful inkjet prints.

Lorna’s career has been dominated by her interest in image making and storytelling. She worked in film and television for some years, and is now a restaurateur and very busy photographer.

Trucking is a powerful statement about the industry and, although we don’t see them, the men and women it involves. Sim experiences obvious trepidation when she gets up close to the massive machines but she is intrigued by the people inside them and the lives they live. The placement of trucks on the road and the landscape setting point to emotional responses: threatened; the excitement of the journey; admiration for a long distance driver heading off into a long night; the truckie as a modern day working hero. There are wet days (which she particularly likes as subject matter), the portent and imminent challenge of heavy skies, long stretches of road and helpful signposts to give physical context to the journey.

Trucking is a powerful statement about the industry and, although we don’t see them, the men and women it involves. Sim experiences obvious trepidation when she gets up close to the massive machines but she is intrigued by the people inside them and the lives they live. The placement of trucks on the road and the landscape setting point to emotional responses: threatened; the excitement of the journey; admiration for a long distance driver heading off into a long night; the truckie as a modern day working hero. There are wet days (which she particularly likes as subject matter), the portent and imminent challenge of heavy skies, long stretches of road and helpful signposts to give physical context to the journey.

Considering Lorna Sim’s interest in the people involved in or affected by the trucking industry it was fitting that the exhibition should be dedicated to the late Bob Knight, whose accidental death last year shocked everyone.

We are delighted to present Lorna Sim’s Trucking in the HUW DAVIES GALLERY at the Manuka Arts Centre.

PhotoAccess 25th Anniversary Print Portfolio
This limited edition print portfolio is 16 images donated by artists associated with PhotoAccess as board members, board advisors, staff, course tutors and exhibiting members to commemorate the PhotoAccess 25th Anniversary in September 2009. Macquarie Editions printed the portfolio with UltraChrome HDR pigment inks on 310 gsm Canson Infinity BFK Rives 100% rag in a numbered edition of 25, with one artist’s proof. Boxed sets have been acquired by private collectors and Canberra Museum and Art Gallery. Seven boxed sets remain for sale. Images numbered 11 to 20/25 are for sale individually and a number have been acquired by private collectors. Proceeds from the sale of the edition help PhotoAccess continue its work providing community access to the photo based arts through exhibitions, courses and special projects.

The portfolio would not have been possible without our supporters:

Macquarie Editions: Stephen Best is a PhotoAccess member, master digital printmaker and owner of Macquarie Editions. His first solo exhibition, Coast, was shown in the HUW DAVIES GALLERY in 2007. Stephen has printed a significant number of exhibition images for PhotoAccess members and other artists around Australia and is renowned for the quality of his work.

Abell’s Kopi Tiam Restaurant at Manuka: Lorna Sim is a partner in Abell’s Kopi Tiam restaurant and a long-standing member of PhotoAccess. She and Abell Ong have supported and shown photography in the restaurant for many years and are very pleased to be associated with PhotoAccess and the commemorative print portfolio.

Barbie Robinson: Barbie Robinson is a member and staff member of PhotoAccess. Her exhibition 256 Shades of Grey was shown in the HUW DAVIES GALLERY in 2005. She is supporting the edition in memory of her mother, Beb Bartholomew. Beb came to openings at PhotoAccess and sat happily in 'her' chair at the front desk sipping champagne and people-watching. She loved encouraging and supporting people she saw as 'having a go'. She had a special affection for PhotoAccess, observing a supportive environment for both its staff and its artists. Ed Whalan was her particular pin-up boy because of his role in introducing Barbie to the intricacies and boundless delights of photography.

The PhotoAccess 25th Anniversary Print Portfolio was exhibited in the PhotoAccess HUW DAVIES GALLERY from 18 March - 14 April 2010. [inline:25th_combined_lr.pdf=Download Catalogue]

Lorna Sim’s images are always strikingly beautiful and meticulously composed; her creative skills are reflected in the many awards she has received in recent years. Lorna’s work has been seen in PhotoAccess and other group exhibitions and small solo shows, but this is her first solo exhibition in the HUW DAVIES GALLERY.

When we discussed the idea of an exhibition with Lorna we had in mind the work we were familiar with—dancers, portraits, atmospheric street scenes, interiors and landscapes. We were unprepared for the images she showed us. The Trucking images had immediate dramatic impact and showed a coherent, unusual vision. Clearly they came out of a deep fascination for the subject. As an artist in residence Lorna was able to consult with us to develop the series and the exhibition came together quickly in collaboration with Stephen Best of Macquarie Editions, who optimised the impact of the images in beautiful inkjet prints.

Marie Lund has a long history of involvement in the arts—as a photographer, painter and mixed media artist, and as an art educator. Her resume only hints at her work in solo and group exhibitions, publications and teaching. She has been a member of many professional and community associations in Canberra and elsewhere, including PhotoAccess, Canberra Photographic Society and the MultiFocus group of photomedia artists.

Marie recently left Canberra for the (presumably) calmer environs of the New South Wales South Coast, but continues to show work in PhotoAccess group exhibitions and, now, in this solo exhibition in the HUW DAVIES GALLERY. Her first PhotoAccess solo exhibition was Chocolate Box Pictures in 1997 in our Kingsley Street premises.

An inveterate traveller, Marie has shared images from her annual visits to central Europe with Canberra audiences for many years. Simple Alchemy is something of a departure from the beautiful landscapes and streetscapes we are used to seeing in her name. As she says in her Artist Statement

Simple Alchemy is a group of photograms, created without a camera, generated by either sunlight or tungsten light illumination. It is the process of experimentation that interests me, where the joy of creation tales over the desire for perfection.

This is a very productive departure for Marie. It brings together her interest in photographic processes and her wider fascination with creative media. Obviously control of the technical means of creation is happily subsumed to the prospect of a chance effect, the sometimes more interesting than expected outcome that can come from making images direct to paper and, even more chancy, taking them out of the darkroom. The making of photograms seems to fit very cleanly with Marie’s instinctive approach to making art in nature.

Simple Alchemy was first shown last year at the Shoalhaven Arts Centre Gallery in Nowra. Unfortunately for us some of the images were sold and, therefore, not available for this exhibition. We have chosen to reproduce a few of those images in the catalogue to give visitors a wider context for the body of work Marie has called Simple Alchemy.

PhotoAccess is very pleased to show Marie Lund’s Simple Alchemy in the HUW DAVIES GALLERY at the Manuka Arts Centre.

Barbie Robinson's commitment to the 256 Shades of Grey project began in 2004. Inspired by their contribution to the community, Barbie decided to take time away from her work as a teacher to focus on the remarkable stories, diverse backgrounds and interests of 12 women and men from Canberra and the region born before 1935. 256 Shades of Grey showed in the HUW DAVIES GALLERY from 12 December 2005 to 31 January 2006.

The project was assisted by the Seniors Grants Program, ACT Chief Minister's Department. Barbie Robinson conducted interviews, photographed the subjects and produced the images and digital stories during an eight week PhotoAccess residency, preceded by a long period of preparation. The enormous amount of time she gave to 256 Shades of Grey was entirely voluntary.

In early 2006 Barbie donated the exhibition to us for the PhotoAccess Collection. Since that time she has retired from teaching, shown in many group exhibitions, become an even more committed contributor to the Canberra arts community, produced portrait and other work for community organisations and business and, more recently, become an irreplaceable member of the PhotoAccess team. In this catalogue we reproduce the statement that accompanied the first showing of the work and her recent statement, which touches further on her motivation as a photo artist. Barbie Robinson's work is held in public, corporate and private collections in Australia and Pakistan. We are pleased to have 256 Shades of Grey in the PhotoAccess Collection and to be able to present it once again in the HUW DAVIES GALLERY.

Simple Alchemy is a group of photograms, created without a camera, generated by either sunlight or tungsten light illumination. It is the process of experimentation that interests me, where the joy of creation tales over the desire for perfection.

This is a very productive departure for Marie. It brings together her interest in photographic processes and her wider fascination with creative media. Obviously control of the technical means of creation is happily subsumed to the prospect of a chance effect, the sometimes more interesting than expected outcome that can come from making images direct to paper and, even more chancy, taking them out of the darkroom. The making of photograms seems to fit very cleanly with Marie’s instinctive approach to making art in nature.

Simple Alchemy was first shown last year at the Shoalhaven Arts Centre Gallery in Nowra. Unfortunately for us some of the images were sold and, therefore, not available for this exhibition. We have chosen to reproduce a few of those images in the catalogue to give visitors a wider context for the body of work Marie has called Simple Alchemy.

PhotoAccess is very pleased to show Marie Lund’s Simple Alchemy in the HUW DAVIES GALLERY at the Manuka Arts Centre.

Barbie Robinson's commitment to the 256 Shades of Grey project began in 2004. Inspired by their contribution to the community, Barbie decided to take time away from her work as a teacher to focus on the remarkable stories, diverse backgrounds and interests of 12 women and men from Canberra and the region born before 1935. 256 Shades of Grey showed in the HUW DAVIES GALLERY from 12 December 2005 to 31 January 2006.

The project was assisted by the Seniors Grants Program, ACT Chief Minister's Department. Barbie Robinson conducted interviews, photographed the subjects and produced the images and digital stories during an eight week PhotoAccess residency, preceded by a long period of preparation. The enormous amount of time she gave to 256 Shades of Grey was entirely voluntary.

In early 2006 Barbie donated the exhibition to us for the PhotoAccess Collection. Since that time she has retired from teaching, shown in many group exhibitions, become an even more committed contributor to the Canberra arts community, produced portrait and other work for community organisations and business and, more recently, become an irreplaceable member of the PhotoAccess team. In this catalogue we reproduce the statement that accompanied the first showing of the work and her recent statement, which touches further on her motivation as a photo artist. Barbie Robinson's work is held in public, corporate and private collections in Australia and Pakistan. We are pleased to have 256 Shades of Grey in the PhotoAccess Collection and to be able to present it once again in the HUW DAVIES GALLERY.

Marie Lund has a long history of involvement in the arts—as a photographer, painter and mixed media artist, and as an art educator. Her resume only hints at her work in solo and group exhibitions, publications and teaching. She has been a member of many professional and community associations in Canberra and elsewhere, including PhotoAccess, Canberra Photographic Society and the MultiFocus group of photomedia artists.

Marie recently left Canberra for the (presumably) calmer environs of the New South Wales South Coast, but continues to show work in PhotoAccess group exhibitions and, now, in this solo exhibition in the HUW DAVIES GALLERY. Her first PhotoAccess solo exhibition was Chocolate Box Pictures in 1997 in our Kingsley Street premises.
