Peter Fraser: Mathematics
6 July – 16 September 2018
Free to all
Peter Fraser, who has been at the forefront of pioneering colour photography as fine art since the 1980s, presents his most recent body of work.
With an almost obsessive focus on the ‘stuff’ of the world, Fraser is concerned with the matter that comprises our everyday. Treating panoramic landscape and the smallest details with the same intense attention, he reveals the incidental beauty and strangeness of our surroundings.
In this exhibition, reflecting on the idea that time, space, and everything within it, can be described mathematically, Fraser brings together a series of photographs of seemingly disparate and unrelated objects and encounters – including still lives, landscapes and portraiture.
Through their oblique juxtaposition and his almost analytical focus, he draws attention to the underlying patterns and forces which shape the world and our perception of it, as well as the systems of belief through which we try to understand and describe it.
