Altered States II

It is happening again, after almost 3 years of inactivity I am about to have another exhibition.

I had my last exhibition, Altered States with my good friend and mosaic artist Diane Schnarr in November of 2004. Since then she has moved to New Zealand and I have become a resident of the Philippines.

In the intervening 18 months I have been working on a way to represent, through my art, the experience of living in Asia. This period of soul searching has not been in vain. The Photospace Gallery at the Australian National University has offered me an exhibition for my latest works in September.

If your in the Australian capital in spring time you will have the opportunity to view my latest work in the flesh, so to speak. Fourteen images printed as canvas giclee prints will be on display from the September 17 to 28.

This Aussie's view of living in the Philippines will be on display. To get a sneak preview of what may be included go to www.pissedpoetpics.com and follow the links to the abstract section of the site and look at the 2006 & 2007 work.

Drop me an email or add a comment here on which works you think should be included in the exhibition.

Hi. I personally find it difficult to take photographs of the Philippines. Skyscrapers you can find in any city. Churches look Spanish, not really "Filipino." There's quite a bit of depressing misery.

But the Christian festivals look tantalising from a photographer's point of view. Your photographs of these (I looked at your abstracts and the Holy Week scenes) makes me want to take a trip to this Asian Catholic nation to just take photos and say: this is the Philippines, these are the Filipinos. You have captured that.
