REPEAT PROCESS

Richard Morecroft may be best known for his work on television – especially with his new show “Letters and Numbers” on SBS - but he’s also been exhibiting his distinctive vertical photographs for several years. Some of his works hang in the collection of Parliament House in Canberra and a new exhibition will be held at NG Art in Chippendale from May 3rd. Richard’s landscape photographs are richly textured explorations of structure and pattern in the natural world, from deserts and rainforests to majestic rock formations. His vividly coloured and dramatically composed images suggest the energy of abstract paintings and create a sense of immersion in the natural landscape.


“I try to make my photographs trace the pathway of the eye from the detail at your feet to the distance of the horizon”, Richard says. “Everything stays in focus to emphasize that every part of the environment is important and interconnected. I’m fascinated by the processes which produce pattern in geological and biological environments. As you examine the detail, you can see repeated motifs, like variations on a musical theme. Erosion, sedimentation, fractal patterns of vegetation growth or mineral formation – there’s a clear sense of common forces at work; universal rules of structure from micro to macro.”


This exhibition, Repeat Process, also steps outside the natural environment for the first time, to include images of cultural artefacts. “In a cultural context we also recognise that there’s significance in repetition. Doing something once, then choosing to do it again – and again – is evidence of value. How you respond to that apparent value is the question – and the challenge”. Richard has held regular photographic exhibitions in NSW galleries, as well as in Melbourne and Adelaide. Repeat Process is his first exhibition at NG Art and is part of the Head On Photo Festival.
