TIM GRESHAM, RENEE SO AND MICHELLE USSHER. CURATOR REBECCA CHEW
Family Resemblance presents the work of three artists whose work bares the traces of photography in other mediums. From snapshots, found images and collage, to formalist photography, these artists both enhance and deteriorate photographic images, 'reproducing' them via weaving, knitting and painting. Tim Gresham's formalist photographs of city buildings become rhythmic patterns via the loom; Renee So's travel photographs become knitted 'positives' of a China, lost and found; and Michelle Ussher renders her visit to Vietnam as a collection of 4x6, watercolour 'snapshots'. Through a process of addition and reduction these artists' work can be seen as a kind of post-photography, indicating a strength in the pervasive nature of photography.
