Thursday 10 April - Sunday 4 May
Jo-Anne Duggan's exhibition, Impossible Gaze, features immense, sumptuously coloured photographs. Her images mirror the gaze of the viewer in the opulent environment of Florentine museums. They draw on historic Italian visual culture, museums, viewing, the Renaissance and photography itself. Seizing on fragments of objects and images layered with wall and ceiling decoration, this exhibition shifts the viewer's focus to the spaces in between the historic artworks.
Jo-Anne Duggan was born on the Sunshine Coast and has recently returned to the region. She has been represented in numerous solo and group exhibitions in Australia and Italy.
