Tamara Dean and Nicole Welch Altered States
Friday 24 January 2020 to Saturday 08 February 2020
Altered States explores Australian identity and their changing relationship with the environment through photographs of the landscape which have been modified by the hand of the artist. By adjusting the expected vista, with the addition of foreign objects, figures or projections, the artists cause you to look twice at their works and question the land and how people relate to it, now and throughout history.
Both Tamara Dean and Nicole Welch are based in regional New South Wales, immersing themselves in nature both personally and professionally. Both artists dedicate themselves to finding an ideal location and creating the setting for their shoots, devoting many hours and thousands of shots to capture a single perfect image.
