Alice Blanch / Box Brownie Equivalents / June 05 – 22 2013
Box Brownie Equivalents are a series of unconventional landscape photographs presenting a world where the linear stream of time is fractured and overlapped amongst exposures; where layers of the past merge as one.
This series utilizes the basic function of a 1930’s box camera to create imagery through multiple, in-camera exposures inspired by the ambiguous and ever changing nature of the sky and its relationship to the landscape below. Alice Blanch is an emerging Australian photographer influenced by the ephemeral nature of the sky and its relationship to the landscape below. Alice works with photographic film, enjoying its magical and unpredictable characteristics and is passionate about using analogue processes and techniques in new and experimental ways.
Alice graduated from her Bachelor of Fine Arts at the South Australian School of Art in 2010 and in 2012 she relocated to Hobart for a year where she undertook her Honours in Fine Art at the Tasmanian School of Art. Alice regularly exhibits in solo and group exhibitions around Australia, in April this year she held her first major solo exhibition at Perth Centre for Photography, and in 2011 received funding to travel to Pingyao, China to present and exhibit her work at one of the largest photography festivals in the world. Over the last 3 years she has been nominated for and awarded a number of art prizes and grants within Australia, most notably she was the recipient of the 2011 Fleurieu Youth Arts Prize and was one of only two South Australian artists to receive the 2013 Australia Council ArtStart grant.
