Suellen Symons October Unseen

10x8 Gallery 2014

Time is almost frozen here. Compressed into a narrow zip, the panorama hones our perceptions - our visual and psychological reading of landscape - focussing us on the vacant detail and emotions conveyed.

Being a poetic fragment of memory and time, growing up in Canberra during the 1970s, that physical stretch of space, somewhat empty and bristling with resilience against the elements, acted as a kind of underbelly to my panoramas.

Memories of growing up beside Lake George, traveling beside it regularly, has always beckoned me to record it.

It is the ethereal quality I have captured once and cannot capture again that gives it a spiritual quality for me, a haunting, a longing.

The mystery of Lake George beckons especially at Twilight.
