Anna Carey: In Search of Rainbows
Peruse photographs of candy-coloured models of fictional architectural spaces inspired by Las Vegas, Palm Springs and the Gold Coast.
Fans of model-making or dream-like photography will enjoy this new photography series. Artereal is showcasing the latest solo exhibition from Los Angeles-based, Australian artist Anna Carey, In Search of Rainbows.
An artist whose practice includes photography and sculpture, Carey's latest show is a body of photographs documenting seven miniature fictional architectural spaces based on the urban environments of cities such as Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Palm Springs and her hometown, the Gold Coast. Each work is based on a dominant colour similar to the rainbow spectrum — red, orange, yellow, green, blue, pink and purple.
Drawing from her imagination and the recollection of various environments rather than a single specific place, Carey combines model-making, drawing and photography to explore the connection between colour, memory and space. "The work] aims to reawaken imaginations for the viewer by creating a space of stillness and contemplation for one to drift between reality and daydreams," according to Carey.
