Tim Price | Jessie Boylan
Painter Tim Price and photographer Jessie Boylan come together for Daily life of actions – in this investigation into environmental activist communities in Australia. Price’s paintings of activism and the daily life of actions -or actions of daily life- are like a fantasy world; everything is highly charged because and the situations are so colourful and exciting, creating banal yet extraordinary scenes. This work, intertwined with Jessie Boylan’s photographs of camp sites and places of protest portray another side to activism that isn’t presented in the media; this and the outback is presented through the vivid colours of Price’s figurative paintings and the details of Boylan’s hyper-real large format photographs.
Using painting and photography, Price and Boylan’s work references each other, creating a painting based on a photograph, and making a photograph that could be a painting, the mediums and decisions of the artists are interrogated throughout Daily life of actions. Price and Boylan present two ways of looking at the same subject through different mediums, both personal yet distant, birds eye and close-up, taking a step back to soak it all in, as well as looking at our own place within a movement.
