Exhibition Visit: Broader Reality by Greta Costello

11th October 2012 Exhibitions


As mentioned in a previous blog post, we recently worked alongside the lovely Greta Costello in the lead up to her most recent exhibition, Broader Reality. We completed the film scanning and printing for all works in this show and last night I attended the opening and was very impressed with the work on display.

Greta describes Broader Reality as an exhibition of analogue photographs captured between 2008-2012. The exhibition presents ordinary moments in time, carefully composed, frozen, reproduced – and therefore abstracted. The panoramic format of these images heightens the power and persistence of the natural environment. By transforming these scenes into a ‘broader reality’, the viewer is encouraged to reflect on their relationship with the urban and natural environments that they inhabit.

Overall the show looked nice printed on the increasingly popular Canson Infinity Platine Fibre Rag 310gsm and each work was expertly framed. I really enjoyed the inclusion of the detail in each image showing the rough edges that comes from scanning film into digital format. Looked very cool and gave each image a distinct difference. Definitely a show worth checking out for those in Melbourne.

Congratulations to Greta on a successful opening and a fantastic body of work. I’m a believer that photography shows in Melbourne are becoming more and more popular and Greta’s show was an example of that last night. Broader Reality can be seen at No Vacancy Gallery at Federation Square until the 21st of October.
