December 2017

Exploring the moments of stillness on the boundaries. An exhibition by Stephen Firth, of work from 2015 to 2017. “I have always been interested in how one feels and responds to being on the edge of a space or structure – whether natural or man-made structures. There appears to me to be occasionally a level of tension occurring in some circumstances, while more often the circumstances seem to provide a simple tranquillity, of stillness, especially in the presence of water.…

In 2016, SAC Resident Artist Phillip England undertook an artist in residence placement at the Hobart CSIRO Marine Laboratories to photograph, using the antique collodion tintype process, specimens from the Australian National Fish Collection (ANFC).

The technique was practiced in…
