Fathom: Sam Beckman – Little Gallery Emerging Artist Program
Devonport Regional Gallery
Little Gallery Emerging Artist Program
20 March – 1 May 2021
The photographs in Fathom investigate the emotive side of our interactions and relationships with the natural world. Using long handheld exposures, Sam has set aside crisp detail in favour of more abstract images, drawing out a deeper atmosphere from the landscapes we live in and travel through. On the one hand, contemplating the inevitability and drama of fire in the Australian bush, and on the other, recognising the restorative energy that time in nature provides, this exhibition is an invitation to reflect on personal and subjective connections to the landscapes around us.
Meet and Greet the Artist: Friday 19 March, 4.00pm at the Gallery
This is a free event, but numbers are limited. RSVP is a must and should be done to firstname.lastname@example.org
