Photography Exhibition by Rachel Randall
From Tuesday 31st March to Sunday 12th April 2009
Signal Arts Centre is pleased to present this collection of work by artist Rachel Randall. Rachel graduated from Dublin Institute of Technology with a B.A (Hons) Degree in Photography. She has exhibited her work in various exhibitions in the last five years, completed a course in Silk Screen Printing, as well as teaching and taking part in professional workshops. She is currently working as a freelance photographer.
She states, 'The landscape that surrounds me is an important point of focus. Varying from the small and intimate to the large and more ambiguous, these spaces hold value and significance to my life because of the feelings and emotions they provoke.'
The work for this exhibition deals with the fragility and transience of human life through nature. The autobiographical aspect of the work offers an insight into the artist's way of thinking. How the permanence of the photograph can translate our experience into images and record what is momentary, rendering the intangible into something more real. Light causes a physical sensation and an intellectual emotion in all of us, as humans we respond to light. This work explores how we react to light and shade, and the associations that they encompass.
Opening Reception: Thursday 2nd April 7-9pm
