Beyond the Square

Exhibition dates:-25 February – 7 March 2021
SHOOTING BEYOND THE SQUARE

JAMBEROO, NSW – In a world inundated with instant images, one local artist is keeping photography real and old-school through film and darkroom processing.

For over a decade, Jamberoo resident Dominique Pierre-Nina has been perfecting his craft using classic film cameras. His most prized possession is his 1958 Leica M3.
Growing up on the island of Mauritius and residing in London during his formative years, Dominique became enamoured of high art photography, especially fashion, when he worked for Selfridges as a menswear buyer.
These days he cuts a noticeable figure around Jamberoo. With chocolate skin offset by salt and pepper hair, Dom can be seen walking his tiger-striped hounds, Phoenix and Gypsy, always with a camera flung over his shoulder on the hunt for the next great shot. He has even installed a darkroom on his farm where he spends countless hours perfecting his printed images.
In 2020, Dom launched his first major exhibition “Beyond the Square” at The Creative Space in Sydney and the Old Fire Station in Kiama, and he received a Highly Commended place in the prestigious Mono Awards for his stunning work “The Faraway Tree”. He has now been invited by Fern Street Gallery to exhibit a selection of his works from 23 February to 7 March 2021.
The evocative, dreamy and nostalgic quality of his collection are reminiscent of photography giants like Ansel Adams and Herb Ritts. Dominique has chosen to present all the photographs in a square format, inspired by his love of the famous Hasselblad camera, which shoots 6×6 square film. Hence the title “Beyond the Square”, a format that focuses the eye intensely on the subject without peripheral distraction and inviting deep contemplation. Dom’s works include portraits, architecture, nudes, and landscapes from his travels around the world, from the glaciers of the Arctic to the peaks of Japan and Switzerland.
Dom will be onsite throughout this free exhibition to guide visitors through the space. His works will be for sale and as Dom is an animal-lover, 10% of proceeds will be donated to WIRES in aid of wildlife that have suffered from the recent devastating bushfires.

From the Garden

Exhibition dates:11-21 March 2021.
‘From the Garden’

Duo Exhibition featuring Alexandra Strong and Jess Hutchison
“This body of work ‘From the Garden’ explores our connection with nature and the importance of spending time amongst flora and fauna. The past year has taught us that more than ever we require the presence of the outdoors and all its wonder to truly enjoy our best life.”
Both Alexandra and Jess reside in the beautiful Shoalhaven on the NSW South Coast with their young families.
Alexandra’s work is a reflection of her natural surroundings – from the rolling hills and beautiful plant life which surround her home town of Berry, to the fresh open beaches and intricate rock pools which she explores with her children.
Formally trained as a facialist and having studied the practice of reiki energy healing – she brings this meditative use of energy into her painting. “When I am deep in the flow of my work I feel a deep connection to the land and infuse positive energy into every piece through use of colour and texture.”
Jess Hutchison is also a full time painter – inspired by the stunning Shoalhaven landscape and birdlife. With a deep love of colour, her vibrant artworks feature some of Australia’s most colourful flora and fauna.
She paints in a unique style that blends realism with quirky, loose and colourful lines and layers. Her signature line work detailing around the eyes of her birds is a nostalgic nod to her makeup-artistry background.
Jess hopes to create a connection and evoke a sense of calm and happiness through her art – “ I am passionate about my art practice, it is food for my soul and when I create I do so with my whole heart.”
