Semi-Finalist Gender Gaze Exhibition, Brisbane Festival 2016

I am a semi-finalist in the Gender Gaze Exhibition as part of the 2016 Brisbane Festival. The exhibition runs from 15-24 September at Metro Arts. The photograph being exhibited is ‘Tea Party: Anna’s-28th-and-a-half-year birthday pantomime’ and my artist statement reads: ‘I decided to stage a tea party with my childhood toys. While it was fun, the process also raised questions about gender roles and repeating learned behaviours.’

As part of being a semi-finalist my photograph was also shown on a Billboard!

Shortlisted for the Lord Mayor’s Photographic Awards 2016

Anna was shortlisted for the 2016 Lord Mayor’s Photographic Awards for her photograph ‘The Poets at Below Deck’.

Below Deck was once a month from April 2015 – April 2016 and run by poet Sophie Tarrant. Within this space, chalk drawings adorned the walls together with an assortment of old paintings and objects. When filled with a mixture of dazzling poets amid low lighting, the event burst with atmosphere.

Photographers were asked to submit images that reflected Brisbane’s creative lifestyle.

Clayton Utz Launch Art Award, 2014

This is Anna’s second time as a finalist in the Clayton Utz Launch Art Award, an award for Queensland artists. Her photographic artwork ‘He Ate Up the Sky’ was selected along with forty-three other finalists.

‘He Ate Up the Sky’ plays with double exposure on medium format film mixed with a circular poem overlay. The work will hang in the Clayton Utz offices for one year and is for sale.

Lord Mayor’s Photographic Awards, 2014

My photograph ‘Backyard Flight’ was shortlisted for the People’s Choice Awards, in the 2014 Lord Mayor’s Photographic Awards. ‘Backyard Flight’ is part of a series based on my brother and a makeshift superman outfit. It catches the moment mid-air as he takes a flying leap above our Brisbane suburban swimming pool.
