Visual connections with the water

Visual connections with the water Image

A new exhibition opening at the Maritime Porthole Gallery in Docklands this month will explore connections to the water.

Curator of the gallery Robert Lee Davis has paired with photographer Min SimanKevicius to create the exhibition “New Ports New Shores New Works”, in what will be their first collaboration.

Although they work across different mediums, Mr Davis in painting and collage and Mr SimanKevicius in digitally manipulated photographs, the pair say there are connections between their work.

“We both manipulate images to tell a story,” Mr Davis said.

While the exhibition will predominantly feature work created independently, the pair will also collaborate on a piece throughout the exhibition.

“I’ve provided Robert with a background image and he will then do some collage work,” Mr SimanKevicius said. “That’s going to be an interesting process at the exhibition.

Mr Davis said he hoped the exhibition would bring some more life into Docklands.

“We’re trying to bring that art focus down there,” he said.

“I think for me I try to find a story in the location I am in, so seeing things tossed around, thrown on the floor, perhaps a ticket stub from a ride on the wheel or other bits and pieces I’ve found combine to create my imagery of the place, which you’ll see in the exhibition,” Mr Davis said.

“New Ports New Shores New Works” opens on September 5 and can be viewed at the Maritime Porthole Gallery on Docklands Drive until December 5.
