This exhibition features new photographic work from Cory Varcoe. Varcoe is self-taught in his art practice and has been photographing landscapes for over seven years. Over the past three years, Varcoe has been creating fine-art photographs that reflect his surroundings using the body’s nude form to emulate landscape. By using the body in its nude form, Varcoe aims to create visual landscapes that trick the viewer into thinking they are looking at a far-off place. Once the eye draws closer, the viewer may recognise that what they are looking at is made up of parts of the human body.
In this exhibition, Varcoe is combining two main photography styles; using the body’s nude form to emulate landscape and linking the landscape to water. Varcoe creates waterscapes by capturing the reflection of the form in water and the movement of water around the body over a period of time. This is similar to the way water moves around the coastline.
Each work is composed from carefully selected photographs of detailed body parts. The chosen images are digitally layered and manipulated to create beautiful and atmospheric landscapes.
