Nature and Form – Greta Costello

Exhibition and Shows

19 Feb 2019 to 2 Mar 2019

Nature and Form presents medium format and 35 millimetre analogue photography by Greta Costello. Costello uses the photographic image to explore human interaction with the natural and urban environment. The images are minimalistic, with a strong awareness of composition, contrast and form.

The imagery is inspired by a fascination with architecture, seasonal change, modern cities and the impermanence of individual human activity in constructed settings. Subjects grasp the available fragments of natural elements in engineered settings; mother and child soak up a dose of sunlight, a tree stands in conversation with an empty bench seat, a figure gazes at the ocean. Can the horizon drown out the encroaching concrete and bitumen? These urban scenes are contrasted with imagery pertaining to what was once a more authentic representation of nature and the passing of time – gnarled wood, melting snow and charred bushland.

All images were captured on film using a Fuji Xpan and Hasseblad 500C in various locations in Australia and abroad.
