Exhibition: 'Home' by James Green
'Home' is a new series of environmental portraits by Australian artist, James Green. A visual anthropology of domestic settings, this body of work documents local artists and makers, and their personal narratives.
Inspired by creative spaces, James Green is interested in personal environments as visual representations of people. From the spaces we inhabit, to the belongings we accumulate and the stories they hold, each image shares clues about their subject.
Through sharing experiences with the people he captures, ‘Home’ has uncovered a sense of place for Green in a city has visited for 20 years but never really seen. Through this project, Green has found a place means nothing without getting to know its people. "The outcome is the people that I've met and the conversations that we’ve had mean more than the image."
