This exhibition explores the use of digital technologies and the photographic image in the creation of paintings, drawings and ceramic objects. It posits that artists who use technology as the basis of their art making are extending the experience of the “digital eye” so as to reclaim an analogue familiarity. It will present works by artists who create directly from digitally-mediated and photographic images, arguing that the physical act of painting, drawing and object making, and the presence of the artist’s hand brings us closer to the physical world which we inhabit.

Curated by Dr Vincent Alessi, Senior Lecturer, Creative Arts, La Trobe University.

Featuring works by Alvaro Alvarez, Justin Andrews, Peter Ben, Erica Berechree, Alan Constable, Chris O’Brien, Simon Finn and Darren Wardle.
