EXPOSED - OPENING RECEPTION
Fri. 24 March 2017, 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm AEST
Join us for the OPENING RECEPTION of EXPOSED by MIKE SKELTON and a Q&A with the artist
EXPOSED presents a rare opportunity to experience an insightful and inspirational array of images by photographer Mike Skelton.
A ravishing exhibition of rare photographic diversity by a master craftsman compiled over years. The work offers a glimpse into altogether fascinatingly evocative and contrasting worlds.
EXPOSED is primarily an exhibition about contrasts; two-thirds of the works are photojournalism from developing nations and one-third evidence commercial work, which Skelton likes to think, ‘bucks the norm’.
The images captured through Skelton’s creative lens reveal an insightful imagination and empathy at work. The masterful navigation draws on synergies and juxtapositions as the finely tuned narration and aesthetic is informed and humbled by the reportage aid projects. The exhibition presents diverse opportunities to share a journey resonating with dignity, grace and beauty found in disparate places. Mike is moved and inspired by the tenacity of the human spirit to hold onto life in the face of overwhelming odds.
