Artist Janina Green has set out to recreate the spooky feel of darkness in the country through a Gippsland-based photography exhibition at the Gippsland Art Gallery 14 Jan -12 Feb 2012.
I enjoyed the interview with Cath McAloon from ABC Gippsland. I don't often feel that way about interviews! It was also great to have a quick gear chat with ABC Photographer Rachael Lucas. A lovely bonus at the opening event of my exhibition. Thanks to all the team at the Gippsland Art Gallery and the whole experience was a fitting end to my CAN Inc. residency at the Cowwarr Art Space.
....Many of the photographs were taken in the paddocks around Cowwarr, where Janina was an artist in residence at the Cowwarr Arts Space, as well as in her home town of Yallourn North and other parts of Gippsland.
Janina has hand-painted a blue-tint to the photographs to give the prints a 'cool' look. She says it also adds an emotive element.
"The colour really does change them from being straight, sort of, documentary photographs of a real place. They become an emotional place now with the colour."
