Opening at Enjoy: Breckon and Shaun Waugh, Two photographers

Breckon and Shaun Waugh
Two photographers

September 3 - September 27, 2014
Opening : Wednesday, September 3, 5:30pm

Showcasing a range of techniques and processes used in contemporary photography, Two photographerspresents a selection of photographs from Breckon’s ‘Real State’ series alongside new works in the ‘Covenant cut-outs’ series by Shaun Waugh. Both bodies of work explore ideas around place, shelter and protection, through physical or digital manipulation of the image.

Breckon is a New Zealand artist now living in the Kimberley region of Western Australia. The ‘Real State’ images are cut from real estate advertisments, selected for their likeness to old and semi run-down properties Breckon lived in while flatting. Prompted by the physical scars of these rental properties, Breckon further scars the images – cutting and tearing them to consider the provenance of each house and expose the wear and tear of sheltering emotional people.

Shaun Waugh is a Wellington artist whose practice draws on photography’s artistic and technical histories, exploring a balance between ‘pictorial’ and ‘conceptual’ strategies. Waugh’s ‘Covenant cut-outs’ foreground the act of selection, using digital manipulation to mask areas of the photograph beneath a single colour. The series also references the protection of natural and cultural features on privately owned land through the legal mechanism of an open space covenant – a landscape project initiated in 1977 by the QE2 National Trust.
