Opening event Saturday August 25, from 11.00am
Parlour Projects, Hastings
Billie Culy has previously drawn on flower arrangements to examine traditional still-life painting, reconfiguring its treatment of colours and textures into the medium of photography. In Windows, Culy continues her recurring theme of still-life arrangements, this time employing found objects from local second-hand stores, and re-imagining them in constructed sets. In doing so, Culy transforms the banality of household objects into whimsical, mysterious and imaginary still-life scenes. By shifting our attention to ordinary everyday objects—a faded tapestry, a porcelain vase, a lace tablecloth—Culy helps us to find the charm and joy in the everyday.
