Water Bending Off A Rock

•Freshwater Study•

Water Bending Off A Rock (2017) is the first series released by JACK TAR & Co. Three black and white photographs presented in a triptych or seen individually are made at one of Eastern Australia's most picturesque waterfalls in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales. By combining crucial elements of light and perspective within each frame, Water Bending Off A Rock is the liminal point between the surreal and the real. The animate figures found within the analogue exposures seemingly deify the raw natural energy of the land. The series questions existence beyond what is seen, the resonances found in nature a reminder of a far greater presence than the domestic human world.

Freshwater Study (2018) is the first digital series of JACK TAR & Co. Six pictures present a narrative from the life of the land as it is revitalised by rainfall. The highlands come alive as the water becomes an arterial network through the topography of the Southern Highlands. These works are made through the Kangaroo River in NSW.
