Jane Burton appeals to our imagination in luscious, evocative photographs that pay homage to the Australian Gothic. She privileges us with insights into profound, unearthly experiences, expressed through heaving, bodily forms.

While never explicitly describing supernatural phenomena, Burton’s work is permeated by a mysterious, otherworldly glow. In the Blood draws together new and recent works from Burton – sometimes keyhole views and sometimes boundless vistas. Sometimes invoking surface and other times inferring absence and the ethereal.
