- Open Program
26 August–22 October
Walking on leaves, looking up, not down to define place. Yet underfoot, if one looks, ephemeral landscapes can be found. Here, the fallen wait to return to an earth which gave them life. Feet tread them in, rain washes them, wind remodels them, but they hang on, resisting their extinction.
Annually this vision appears and disappears, but the moment of glory, relating to place and season, becomes a memory for what was. This set of work denotes place and memory, depicting the fallen leaves upon the wet and worn streets of humankind.
Being a hobbyist photographer & professional social worker for many years, Tasmanian artist Anne O’Connor was able to combine social work with photography in unique ways. After retiring, she enrolled in a BCA, graduating in 2015. Since then, her photography is more conceptually focused, using time based studies for ideas
