“My view of the world caught in these transitional times, mirrors an unfolding divine drama. There are no titles to any of the works. They are part of a series of haphazard circumstances that speak to each other,” said Mr Psomotragos. Photos: Supplied.
Five Greek-Australian photographers are taking part in an exhibition of their work entitled “ΦΩΤΟΓΡΆΦΟΙ 5 / PHOTOGRAPHERS 5” at the Macquarie University Art Gallery from Monday, 3 May to 18 June.
The exhibition’s curator, Leonard Janiszewski, said the exhibition featured the works of Effy Alexakis, Marryanne Chistodoulou, Irena Conomos, Yiannis Dramitinos and Tom Psomotragos.
“The five photographers came together in an attempt to get the arts moving again following the erosive hiatus due to COVID-19. The Macquarie Art Gallery loved their ideas and offered them exhibition space.
“Each photographer has a very independent eye that focusses upon a particular aspect of their interpretive world. Collectively, a significant diversity of visions will immerse the viewer within the exhibition space and evoke questions of how they, themselves, perceive the world around them.”
He said that a special Curator and Artists’ Floor Talk and Informal launch would be held on Friday, 14 May. Group bookings for guided tours were available.
“The curator and photographers will discuss the exhibition and the individual works in detail. More associated events are planned and these will be placed on the gallery’s website” said Mr Janiszewski.
“The Five Greek-Australian photographers draw on and with light reveal truths, often inconvenient discourses, epiphanies of experience and experimentation, and a beguiling diversity of both physical and metaphysical aesthetics to underscore the tangible and intangible of the human condition.”
