DARK: Steven Cavanagh & Wendy Sharpe

‘DARK’ brings the work of photographer Steven Cavanagh and painter Wendy Sharpe together in a collaborative exploration of light: its containment by and reciprocity with neighbouring darkness. From the internal to the external across the physical, psychological and emotional spaces it inhabits, Cavanagh and Sharpe ‘respectively observe light with an emotional intensity, and a fascination of the visual play of light and dark referred to as Chiaroscuro,’ Bathurst Regional Gallery notes.

‘We see this use of darkness in our work as a physical and psychological space that speaks to the human condition and the artists’ experience.’ – Steven Cavanagh & Wendy Sharpe
