Be Home Before Dark - JANINA GREEN
14 January to 12 February 2012 @ Gippsland Art Gallery

The menace of the everyday world at night is the subject of Gippsland artist Janina Green’s new photographic series, Be Home Before Dark.

Green’s dramatic nocturnes are inspired by memories of running home at night alone, along unmade roads with no street lighting, after overstaying evenings at friends’ houses. Ordinary objects like trees, tractors, cows and silos become laced with peril in strange and gothic landscapes. Green’s handmade and hand tinted photographic technique charges the rural darkness with an ever-shifting shadow-play.
