Interval - Jack Brandtman
PhotoAccess offers residency opportunities to a number of artists each year. An aim of the residency program is to assist emerging artists to develop their practice and present work to a wider audience.
Support for artists in residence includes PhotoAccess membership, use of facilities and equipment, access to courses and workshops, help with grants applications, mentoring and advice, technical and creative support and, in some cases, exhibition opportunities.
PhotoAccess is a strong supporter of the ANU School of Art’s Emerging Artists Support Scheme (EASS): two of our residencies each year are awarded to School of Art final year graduates. Jack Brandtman and Holly Granville-Edge are our residents from the 2011 graduating year. Support from the ACT component of the Visual Arts and Craft Strategy allows us to help emerging artists show their work as part of the HUW DAVIES GALLERY exhibitions program—for some this is their first solo exhibition, helping build a bridge between their student and future lives as contemporary visual artists.
Brandtman’s work has attracted commissions and a number of awards in the past year. Interval is a very personal, conceptually and technically sophisticated work and PhotoAccess is delighted to present it to visitors to the HUW DAVIES GALLERY.
