Urban Landscape#15 Abandoned Chair Newtown by 

This collection of Urban Landscapes is drawn from a larger body of work called Darkscapes. They are moody evocative invitations into mystery and imagination taken from the ordinary things that make up the fabric of city life. Beauty is all around us if only we take the time to notice it. We all look but maybe we don’t all see. This collection of images is a way for me to share what I see with others.

This abandoned chair in the laneway behind my home in Newtown has a real sense of pathos to it. It seems to sum up the derelict and decayed lives behind the facade of vitality and progress that makes the inner city such a wonderful place to live.

    I think I like your black and white shots the best. Full of such pathos and sadness. I can understand why people cry when viewing your exhibits.

    thanks cellia. my real work …that is the photo based work that I develop for exhibition….. is very complex and dark and quite powerful but wouldn’t translate to a site like this. My last major work had 80 panesl to it. 42 black on black painted panels and 39 handcoloured fibre b/w 10×8 prints hung in six walls. All of which made one artwork.

    I’m using RB to up load some of the masses of extra odd photo’s that I have acummulated over a very long period. Like these urban landscape shots.

    thanks for taking the time to have a look and make a comment on my work. :)
