In his first solo show, renowned Australian Photographer Larnce Gold, is exhibiting a new series of ethereal images at the iconic Sun Studios located at 42 Maddox St, Alexandria.
Titled Orcaedia, the 18 images of Moth Orchids are inspired by the miracle of budding orchids and the resilience of the plants, their ability to regenerate and their inherent beauty.
Larnce Gold’s exhibition aims to explore a combination of botanic abstractions and quiet meditations on the Moth orchid or Phalaenopsis.
“I was inspired by the colours and shapes these flowers hold and the feelings they evoke,” explains the artist. "By magnifying the perspective of the subject I hope to draw the viewer more deeply into the works, thus inviting them to experience the abstract beauty in daily life and to notice the way they can make you feel. When you realise what you are looking at, you might take a moment to think, ‘Wow, these are flowers and they’re everywhere. Nature is a uniquely capable artist.'"
Orcaedia opened on Tuesday July 4 from 6.30-8.30pm and then continues until Monday, July 24.
Pop in between 10 and 4pm. Part of the proceeds from this event will be donated to Sydney Children’s Hospital.
