Exhibition Description

Infinite coast is a collaboration between Professional Photographic Artists Chris Dark and Chris Saunders.

Coast is the second project in the Infinite series and was captured over the winter and spring of 2020 on the Perth Metropolitan and Turquoise Coasts of Western Australia. This body of work is an exploration of the infinite nature of our minds and the eternal nature of our minds. Our coastline draws people from all walks of life for different reasons however for us its a place close to our homes we can escape the confines of reality. The endless horizon and calming effects of the salt air, rolling waves, shifting sands and constant change combine and create an atmosphere that allows us to be present in the moment and provide a window to the infinite nature of our minds. A place filled with colour, hope and joy. The concept was born from circumstances beyond our control that prevented us from reaching wide open remote spaces and feeling the infinite space of the environment. The use of age old techniques from the film days gave us the freedom to create images with simple shapes, colours and lines to express what we see with our minds.
