An impressive emerging talent, we are very pleased to announce our first solo show from Clinton Holler,an artist who works from a deep intellectual base of the philosophy of art. He views photography, in the same way as thinker Vilem Flusser, as a technical image form that has fundamentally changed the way in which the world is seen. Photography heralds new forms of perceptual experience and knowledge. In contrast to paintings that can be sensibly read, as more or less direct signs, of what the painter intended, photography produces images that cannot be so directly ‘decoded’.

In the ‘Accept Only the New’ series for example Holler photographs man-made coverings, such as images of landscape that are sometimes utilised to conceal ‘unsightly’ building works in cities. Intended to create a 3D experience to render the eyesore ‘invisible’ the cladding is reduced by Holler firmly back in to two dimensions, its falsity revealed by give-away intrusions.

In a world overwhelmed with imagery Holler critiques all those using a camera who might think that they are operating its controls to produce a picture that shows the world the way they want it to be seen.

However, given the central role of photography to almost all aspects of contemporary life, Holler argues that the programmed character of the photographic apparatus shapes the experience of looking at and interpreting photographs and hence the world around us.  His work examines the cultural contexts in which we interpret meaning  and shape our outlook on the world.
