Sydney based photographer Scott Perkins makes his Southern Highlands debut in presenting Understory, a collection of visually arresting and technically marvellous still and lightbox photographs. Showing in our upstairs gallery space, Understory is our first photographic exhibition of 2023, and demonstrates the artistic and technical latitude afforded by photo-media disciplines.
Scott Perkins is a rising artistic voice whose superior technical skills have propelled his expedited success. Perkins creates abstract photographs that merge image, imagination, and material engineering, exploring photo-abstract outcomes in strikingly refreshing ways.
Understory follows Scott Perkins’ exhibition, Penumbra, which was exhibited at Michael Reid Sydney in 2022.
In this exhibition, viewers are treated to impeccably designed lightbox photographs that have been engineered entirely by the artist. Perkins’ lightboxes carry images of undisclosed landscapes as well as abstracted botanicals. Scott Perkins’ ability to navigate macro as well as micro imagery create a truly enjoyable exhibition experience, while demonstrating the artist’s impressive range.
On Saturday 15th July, the Southern Highlands Gallery team will host an afternoon reception with the artist in attendance. This event will take place from 3.00pm to 5.00pm, and we are now inviting those who wish to attend to be in touch.
Understory will exhibit at Michael Reid Southern Highlands until August 6th 2023. To discuss an acquisition of artworks in this exhibition please email email@example.com
