Catherine Cloran Beautiful Things


Conny Dietzschold Gallery Head On Photo Festival 2010

This series of work was shown as part of the Head On Photo Festival 2010 at Conny Dietzschold Gallery 2 Danks St Waterloo, NSW Australia.

My work involves playful examinations of the paradoxical relationship between beauty and ruin. I am interested in both the seductive and destructive qualities of plastic and other materials. By using both ‘straight’ photographs and digitally manipulated images, I create simple juxtapositions of objects and environments raising questions about human connection to or separation from the natural world.
