Unforeseen is an exhibition of photographic work by artists Catherine Cloran, Niki Gudex, Chris Round, Rosalie Nilson and Zorica Purlija. Presented by the wonderful Sandy Edwards of ArtHere.
Niki was selected as a ‘Portrait Prize semi-finalist’ with her work on view as part of the Head On Portrait Prize exhibition, at the Museum of Sydney, Australia, 2 May – 8 June 2015.
Exploring the frameworks of the beauty image, Niki photographed model Georgia McGlennon in the studio, with hair and makeup by Giorgia Skye. Niki photographed Georgia twice, in order to use photographic images of the model as a mask over her own self.
“Niki Gudex’s sensual image Water #1 is included in the ‘Black Eye Gallery Summer Show’ curated by Sandy Edwards. The exhibition showcases the work of twenty four local photographic artists who have been inspired by the warmth and long days of the unique Australian summer.”
In May this year, Gudex’s work was included in the 2003 Hatched National Graduate Exhibition at Perth Institute for Contemporary Arts as one of the top sixty six Visual Arts graduates in Australia.
The Hatched National Graduate Show is a curated showcase of new art from Australia’s top graduates. Continuing to be the only national survey of its kind, this year’s Hatched features sixty six of the most promising artists fresh out of seventeen art schools from around Australia. Hatched has become a rite of passage for Australia’s next generation of artists and a snapshot of the directions we can expect in emerging contemporary practice.
