Fiona Foley: Horror has a face - Art Collector

Fiona Foley, Missionary Zeal 2017. Fujiflex digital print, edition of 15. 45 x 80cm. Courtesy of The Artist and Andrew Baker Art Dealer, Brisbane.

The photographic series Horror has a face is focused on two central characters: Archibald Meston and Ernest Gribble — and the succeeding narratives ripple out from them. These two protagonists strode onto the historical stage and became central to Queensland's The Aboriginals Protection and Restriction of the Sale of Opium Act, 1897. Archibald Meston became the Southern Protector of Aborigines and Reverend Ernest Gribble was instrumental in running Anglican missions across the state. Meston and Gribble had active roles in shaping the destinies of many Aboriginal lives through their ideologies, experiments and methods of isolation.
