'Summer Lovin': A Journey to the 'Bliss' Exhibition
Great news! I don't think I will tire of this, but feel buzzed with excitement as another of my ICM (Intentional Camera Movement) photographs, 'Summer Lovin,' is set to take a part of the wall space at the 'Bliss' exhibition in the fabulous Aspire Gallery. This fabulous display of artistic talent is scheduled to grace the gallery walls from October 14th to November 11th, 2023. As the artist, I'm absolutely delighted to share and offer a glimpse into the process of preparing and framing this photograph for the upcoming exhibition.
The Joy of Artistic Recognition
For any photographer or artist, the feeling of having their work chosen for a gallery exhibition is nothing short of exhilarating. It's a moment when creativity somehow meets validation, and 'Summer Lovin' has been fortunate enough to capture the essence of 'bliss', and earn one of the prestigious limited spots.
Preparing for the Exhibition
The journey of an artwork from conception to exhibition is a multifaceted one. Preparing for an exhibition involves not only the creation of image, but also the careful selection of the right piece that resonates with the theme of the exhibition. In this case, 'Summer Lovin' wasn't the only piece I put forward for the exhibit, but was obviously one that resonated with the curator. Shot at Surfers Paradise on the Gold Coast, I captured this and fell in love with its movement and dreamy, abstracted nature immediately.
Printing, on the correct stock for the image and the framing, too, both play a pivotal role in presenting the photograph in the most impactful way possible.
The Significance of 'Bliss'
The 'Bliss' exhibition carries a particular theme that offers a unique opportunity for artists to explore the concept of bliss, and summer, in their own way. It can manifest through various subjects, styles, and interpretations, and the exhibit is filled to the brim exploring so many different mediums and interpretations.
One of the most thrilling aspects of being part of a gallery exhibition is the opportunity to share space with fellow artists. The 'Bliss' exhibition brings together a diverse array of creative talents, each offering their unique perspective on the theme. As a photographer and visual artist, I am always excited to see my work displayed alongside others, appreciating the richness of artistic expression. A celebration of creativity, a chance to explore the diverse interpretations of bliss, and an opportunity for viewers to immerse themselves in the creative world.
