Catherine Cloran October Unseen


10x8 Gallery 2014

These photographs show buildings and places in various states of transition. I’m drawn to photographing walls, fences, facades, and materials that conceal, enclose, protect and exclude, such as builders’ scrim, shade cloth, netting and plastic. In conjunction, I am also interested in the transformative effect of light on these otherwise utilitarian materials or transitory sites.

Construction was short-listed for the Head On Landscape Prize in 2015 and won the associated NSW Parliament Landscape Prize. In this image building scrim, digitally printed with gum trees and parkland, surrounds a movie set under construction in Centennial Park, Sydney.
