Pho­tog­ra­pher Sa­man­tha Ever­ton presents ‘In­do­chine’

Where Sydney - - Hot In The City -

Ac­claimed pho­tog­ra­pher Sa­man­tha Ever­ton presents “In­do­chine”, a dy­namic ex­hi­bi­tion se­ries which ex­plores the in­ter­sec­tion of Western in­flu­ences and Eastern tra­di­tions, as part of this year’s Head On Photo Fes­ti­val. In­formed by the artist’s multi-cul­tural up­bring­ing, with three adopted Asian si­b­lings, “In­do­chine” de­picts a woman nav­i­gat­ing the con­flict­ing cul­tural pres­sures of the East and the West. Ex­ud­ing vis­ual lux­ury and vivid sen­su­al­ity, the art­works plunge the viewer into a colour-sat­u­rated dream­scape. The se­ries ex­plores the en­croach­ment of Western fash­ion within Asian cul­tures and the strug­gle for au­then­tic­ity amidst con­tem­po­rary in­flu­ences.

Gallery hours Tue–fri 9.30am–6pm and Sat 10am–5pm. 25 April–19 May, Art­house Gallery, 66 Mclach­lan Av­enue, Rush­cut­ters Bay. 9332 1019. art­house­gallery.com.au
