Monuments

Madeline Bishop

16 Oct 2014 to 26 Oct 2014

Madeline Bishop presents Monuments, a photographic series commenting on domestic life in contemporary Australia.

Through the use of historical image making structures within the formal portraiture style, Monuments showcases Bishop’s process of incorporating elements of recent and distant history to provide the audience with an understanding of Australia now. Using imagery of native flowers and modern Australian food these photographs explore Australia’s relationship with both its native environments and westernised iconography.
