Since the early 1980’s, I have been fixated with the dynamic and often intrusive presence of colour within public and personal environments. I use flash to isolate elements, accentuate colour and to forge a direct momentary relationship with my subjects. These images are far from subtle and suggest a bigger social narrative beyond their bold graphic and possibly formulaic appearance.
Many of these images were shown at Gallery Ill Diafframa in Milan Italy in 1989 in a solo show titled A Touch of Colour.
Chromophobia is the first public exhibition of these images in Australia.
