RETRO by Usyd Photosoc

We’re bringing a brand new photography competition this semester and the theme is RETRO

This is the chance to showcase your skills as a photographer, where our competition finalists will have their work exhibited at a gallery on the opening night!

Think disco balls, polaroids, year 6 formal, the story that grandpa always tells… this exhibition is all about the memories (good or bad) that we can capture in a photograph.

We want images that inspire a little flash back to the days before the digital, before iPhones, before things got so complicated. Let us see into your memories or let us see a slice of your life that brings us back to the good old days, whichever decade that may be.

Altered Impressions
by Jill Carter-Hansen

Exhibition runs from Tuesday 13 to Sunday 18 November.

Opening Event: 6.30-8.30pm Tuesday 13 November

Altered Impressions
Works on paper
Jill Carter-Hansen (MFA Hons, BFA, Certificate Animation)

Printmaking can be a seductive process…but I seldom print editions!

As a combined-mediums artist, my mind takes me to alternative places and possibilities. The story-teller/poet in me demands metaphors and unexpected endings. Exploring the possibilities within the process constantly whets my creative appetite. I search for what might be rather than what has already happened, realising that a sense of completeness seldom lasts…and perfection?…how can anyone judge what that may be through another’s eyes?

Apart from basic print techniques these works range later through time – past those explored in my studies In Fine-Arts, Graphics and Photography begun at Elam School of Art, at 17, later Auckland University and much later after arriving in Australia and my research at Western Sydney University. when there was NO print-making and where I lectured/tutored part–time and at other Art Institutions, sometimes free-lancing as a photo-journalist, for financial survival.

My memories of drawing go back to around 3 years of age…growing up on a farm where animals dwelled – in my mind, and on paper as much as on the hillsides. The gift of a Kodak Brownie at an early age added another dimension to my image -making and photography is still a constant within my practice. Artists Books began for me around 1984 and the poetry at about 8 years of age.

Apart from some 100 group shows (NZ and Australia) plus 21 solo shows, I’ve written and illustrated for numerous publishers including for my own – and others’-Children’s Books. Australian Federal and State Government grants assisted me in making the latter two of my three experimental Animated Films (narrative without words or dialogue) “spoken” in the pure language of film alone (from my numerous drawn/painted stills – with my added voice chants.) These works were all screened and awarded at International Festivals.

The work of Caravaggio impressed me. Shadow and light express so much. regardless of techniques. Darkness appears richer with light working through to define shape and space. Such images arrive as personal metaphors. Sometimes (with eyes closed) I draw into dark ink applied to the “plate” surface, prior to printing, The resulting unexpected discoveries can then be taken further to reveal and inspire – often suggesting a sudden undoing of any preconceived idea.

More frequently now, I find this subliminal approach – as a gift from The Void – my acceptance of the unexpected over-riding a previous consciously controlled one.

The older I get the more I realise the less I know, except that ‘mystery’ is ALL
