 Melbourne based artist Meg Cowell photographs undulating feminine garments in, what appears, a vacuum of infinite space. The dresses, rich in hue and excessive in their skirting, are handpicked for their unique and romantic character. Cowell’s exhibition, The Sea, The Shore, presents a series of large-scale photographic works that illustrate this shift from garment to artefact. Through sophisticated direction, the artist creates vignettes of unique gowns, lingerie and couture as they bloom into new forms: for example, dresses appear flower-like, floating in the abyss.

Exhibition opens: 1-3pm Saturday 29 November 2014
Exhibition closes: 19 December 2014
Location: Flinders Lane Gallery, 137 Flinders Lane Melbourne VIC 3000
