 Lloyd Godman: A PHOTO:synthetic pathway  

10 September to 18 October

Lloyd Godman: A PHOTO:synthetic pathway traces the evolution of the artist's practice from traditional photographic techniques through to his innovative suspended rotating living air plant sculptures. Through parallel practices as artist and organic gardener, and making a connection between photosynthesis and the role of light in photographic practice, Lloyd Godman presents living plants as 'super-sustainable' sculpture.  There is a strong environmental thread that binds his diverse oeuvre then opens a portal to conceive the planet as a "giant living abstract living photograph" with a consequential shift from environmental art as comment to environmental activism. Curator: Leanne Willis, Deakin University.
