"An appearance of delicacy." Chris Fitzallen
Chris Fitzallen is interested in the relationship between constructed cultural ideas of beauty/desire, the personal/contextual aesthetics of beauty/pleasure including ideas of the sublime.
The work in the exhibition combines large-scale photographic digital prints and the process of painting creating a tension between what is recognized and that, which is understood. The subject of the work includes landscape, sky, still life and the human form. These images are typically used as cultural representations of desire, or that which is desirable
