Still Life: Joachim Froese Photographs 1999 - 2011 Exhibition

Over the last ten years Froese’s work has concentrated on photographic still life and often explores personal family history. Working in black and white as well as colour he has developed a unique way to create his images.

His photographic tableaux are laboriously assembled constructs that seemingly defying reality, which question the inherent nature of the photographic image as a reflection of the real.

‘Still Life’ features a selection of works from his 2009 survey exhibition at the QUT Art Museum. The works are from four series; ‘Rhopography’ 1999 – 2003, ‘Written in the Past’ 2007, ‘Archive’ 2008 and ‘Tell him it is all a transition’ 2011.

Froese is an internationally renowned artist who has exhibited widely in solo and group shows across Australia, Europe, Asia, and North America and his work is included in a number of public collections in Australia and Germany. Froese is a Flying Arts Artist on Tour.This exhibition provides a cohesive overview of the photographic practice of a significant Queensland artist of international standard.

Bound features contemporary and provocative photographs and video work by two up and coming young male Queensland artists. The series 'Everything at All' by Paul Mumme features himself as a suited protagonist questioning preconceived ideas of normality and function through both humorous and serious imagery. In Craig R Cole’s series, 'Within You Without You' he questions the validity of traditional portraiture, photographing friends, family and colleagues from his home town of Toowoomba.  Cole’s photos reveal the intimacy and relationship between the two people featured. Both series show the subject succumbing willingly or unwillingly to the bounds of relationships, society, nature, culture or conditions.
