Frederick Sommer often used found articles and books in his work, and they are as intriguing and beautiful as any art object could hope to be. Perhaps while in Ballarat this weekend, I'll find something worth buying and using in an appropriation ideas, who knows?

Melbourne Photograph Art Scene in the 80's

I am currently putting together a selection of work for the online publication 'Second Nature', published by RMIT. Part of the process requires I write an artist's statement, which I am in the process of writing. Part of my statement, refers to a time in Melbourne, if not Australia, somewhere in the 80's, where Artists, were beginning to question the nature of the photographic 'document'. Given that this is pre-web, I'm not having a great deal of luck finding much online. I do know the CCP published several postcards, one in particular, by Janina Green. The image's title from memory was something like, 'Northcote Baths, Melbourne [with a date]. I putting it out there does anyone from my readership, if your still hanging around here, have one of these postcards? If they do and know my contact details, could they contact me or, leave a comment. Thanks in advance.

A quote

"Man is the actual medium of expression not the tool he elects to use as a means. Results alone should be appraised; the way in which these are achieved is of importance only to the maker. To the extent that the completed work realizes depth of understanding, uniqueness of viewpoint and vitality of presentation, will the spectator respond and participate in the original experience. This premise, restricting too personal and therefore prejudiced interpretation, leads to revolution---the fusion of an inner and outer reality derived from the wholeness of life sublimating things seen into things known."

From "A Contemporary Means to Creative Expression, by Edward Weston,"
The Art of Edward Weston (1932, p.7)
