“As a practising Adelaide architect, Wayne Grivell enjoys the sometimes hidden and secretive forms of beauty embedded within the built environment. The sense of drama, dynamism and light of night photography tends to open up new ways of seeing otherwise ‘mundane’ things.
Adelaide sits alone with a great desert to it’s north and is surrounded largely by flat plains and long highways. It is a lonely place in many ways and this is never more apparent than at night. The city and its mass of suburbia tends to drowse to sleep midway through the evening and the wonders of suburban lanes, warehouses, carparks and roadways become more readily apparent.
A dominant theme of Wayne’s work is the quiet and loneliness of suburbia, this seeming absence of people, with just the sound of distant cars to punctuate the stillness. Anything is possible in the lonely night hours."
This calendar is a collection of works exhibited in the “Adelaide Alone” exhibition at Suzie Wong’s Room, Hindmarsh, Adelaide, as part of the 2012 SALA Festival.
