About the work:
Composition 24, Original Photograph by Shelley Horan.
Composition 24 (Don't Worry, I've Got A System) with Ballpoint Pen, Toothbrush, Box of Matches, Table Salt, Marble, Ping Pong Ball, Saucer, Playing Card and Dead Bee. This piece is part of Compositions, a solo exhibition by Shelley Horan.
Compositions challenges the viewer to consider objects which we often may not stop to notice. Could everyday items like these have lives that we don't know about, outside our regular patterns of use? The collection advances a fantastic notion that objects have complex lifespans and possibilities beyond the momentary attentions we give them. Still, life: the endurance and energy of things, despite all other forces.
About the Artist:
Shelley Horan is a photographer based in Naarm/Melbourne, whose work utilises humour, playfulness, and contradiction as a means of bridging between commercial work and fine art. Her work focuses on the core features of photographed subjects and objects; playing with the ways they clash and harmonise, exploring unlikely marriages of textures and brilliances, toying with uncanniness and scale, and squishing these diverging elements together to form a unified image.
