WHAT: Selected Works by Petrina Hicks
WHERE: Helen Gory Galerie (25 St Edmonds Rd, Prahran)
WHEN: Opening 12 June from 6 - 8pm and runs until July 6
Helen Gory Galerie is excited to present an exhibition of selected photographs by Petrina Hicks. The exhibition includes new photographs paired with a few earlier works that have informed this new series. Hicks’ slick, stylized images at once entice and disconcert the viewer. She employs the seductive visual language of advertising to probe and subvert the very promises of truth, beauty and perfection it seeks to promote. Ambiguity and the blurring of truth and fiction are of endless interest to Hicks. Loaded with history and associations, her works allude to infinite meanings but resist giving a clear message.
