ANTHONY AMOS
IMPERMANENCE

Depot II Gallery, 2 Danks Street, Waterloo
March 24 to April 4 2009
Opening Tuesday 24th March 6 - 8 pm

 

TransientIn April 2008 Anthony Amos held a highly successful exhibition NATIVE at Depot II Gallery in Waterloo. His next exhibition IMPERMANENCE will be more of the unexpected and unorthodox use of the photographic medium. Amos uses pure photographic techniques working mostly with medium and large format cameras, always printing his work in his own darkroom. He makes, not “takes”, his images, often building a work over weeks, months and even decades. “As a procrastinator my decisive moments tend to be quite long,” he says.

 

His title reflects the subject matter of the work, the impermanence of being, the transience of its definition. In NATIVE the focus was on plants and flower “arrangements”. Similarly, in this new exhibition the natural world is represented as taking its course, reflection, beauty and decay, entwined. It seems nothing is static, nature or human nature. The discarded is
re-animated and things refuse death and definition.

 

For Amos, classic photographic processes are just the beginning in the creative process. They are then modified by treatments which transform and “abrase” the surfaces of original negatives. In some work the image floats in the foam of a surfboard, an object Amos has been designing and constructing since he was 14. Prints are variously drawn on, sanded, painted and stained.

 

The work ranges from the very small to the very large. It is not necessarily two dimensional or completely photographic.
The question of colour or black and white is irrelevant. Nothing is sacred and the rules are way out the window.
