Murray Fredericks: Vanity - Art Collector

Murray Fredericks, Mirror 11, 2017, digital pigment print, 120 x 155cm. Courtesy of the artist and ARC ONE Gallery, Melbourne.

In Vanity, award-winning Australian artist Murray Fredericks commences a new cycle in his 14-year Salt project, with his latest series of abstract photographic landscapes from Lake Eyre - Kati Thanda. In this exhibition, Fredericks interrupts his boundless, ethereal horizons through the intervention of mirrors. Rather than employing the mirror as a symbol of self-reflection, Fredericks redirects our gaze out and away from ourselves into the vast environment. Subtly questioning narcissistic attributes of the human condition in the age of the Anthropocene, Vanity instead removes us from the picture, presenting a space in which to escape ourselves.
