STEPHEN GLASSBOROW & EDDIE BOTHA: SOCIALISTIC
15 September – 15 October
Opening: Sunday 15 September, 3pm – 5pm
Fox Galleries is proud to present Socialistic, the first duo exhibition of Stephen Glassborow and Eddie Botha. The human race is in search of a balance, more so now than ever before: a social balance among ourselves and our surroundings, a natural balance to ensure the future of the human race. Glassborow’s and Botha’s works are filled with elements of balance, movement and a search for unity. As mediums mix in different ways, they simultaneously dissect and piece this life together, seeking alternative outcomes. The space between figures is vital in these works calling for a socialistic approach.
WAYNE FOGDEN: THE BRONTE POOL PROJECT
19 October – Tuesday 12 November
Opening: Saturday 19 October, 5pm – 7pm
Wayne Fogden’s The Bronte Pool Project began like his other series; one photograph resonated enough for him to embark on a long-term project. That first photograph of the ocean pool was captured on a stormy winter evening in 2008. The melancholy image appealed because it was more than a picture that simply documented a place. It was the inspiration to further explore the subtle beauty, drama, colour and emotion associated with the coming together of various elements found at the pool: the light at dusk, the calm water of the pool, the movement of the unpredictable sea, the graphic patterns of the swimming lanes, the contrasting textures of cement, sandstone, timber and chrome, the subtle reflections off the water and the perceived lonesomeness of solitary swimmers.
This series is the result of many fleeting excursions to Bronte when summer was long gone, when the water was too cold for most and just after the sun had set, when the quickly fading light was at its softest.
