OUT OF NOW – Beauty Reimagined
October 14 @ 7:00 pm - November 14 @ 12:00 pm
OUT OF NOW
An exhibition by Alex Attard
14th October – 14th November 2021
Withering flowers, wilted, wrinkled and rapidly fading from existence. ‘Out Of Now’ is a metaphor on permanence and impermanence. It represents creation/extinction, earthly/divine, reflection/termination. The photographer interrupts the ‘Now’, reinterprets the future and reconfigures impermanence.
Having dazzled with their beauty at their peak, ‘Out of Now’ may be viewed as a reversal of the flower’s role wherein the flower becomes the pollinator instead of the pollinated, impregnating the photographer’s psyche with their current aesthetic. Consequently, these expiring blooms drifting at the edge of uncertainty are reimagined and cast onto another dimension for future retrospection, thereby extending the legacy of their short existence.
The photographer uses his camera as a basis to portray his vision, as a painter would his brush, to exploit and show up the various stages of a flower in all its various guises.
