Place

by Murray Eskdale

Shrugging off the constraints of man made structures that seized the artist's imagination in the past, Eskdale strives to capture the essence of New Zealand - the feeling and atmosphere of the country that captured his heart and became his home.

 Although a landscape exhibition, Eskdale stays true to his roots and does not abandon mankind's imprint cpompletely. Contrasting details - a sign, a fence, a road - transform what could be generic landscapes into striking 'imagescapes'.

 Simple and non-specific in location, the pieces avoid New Zealand 'hotspots'. They are captured with a thoughtful eye, finding textures and colours representitive of the landscape as a whole rather than just the location of the photograph.

 

All works are printed on archival matte paper and framed by Murray at Mint Gallery.

Unframed price $850
