|Paradise Lost is the latest series of photographic images from leading Australian digital media artist Garth Knight. Using a combination of his own photographs of kinbaku rope bound figures, as well as images of jewels from the atelier of world renowned Parisian jeweller Lorenz Bäumer (head of fine jewels at Louis Vuitton), Knight creates intricate images with intense and obsessive attention to detail.|
As well as Paradise Lost, two previous series of Knight's works - The Enchanted Forest and One Hundred and One Breaths - will also be exhibited. In addition, the front gallery space will be transformed with the installation of a monumental site specific rope and sandstone tree sculpture created specifically for this show.
The exhibition is curated by Angeline Collings and will be officially opened by Moshe Rosenzveig, founder and director of the Head On Photo Festival.
