Artists Roberta Thornley
Theme Art
Roberta Thornley is recognised for the haunting quality she gives to everyday objects through her meticulous staging and distinctive manipulation of light. Her photographs have captured the attention of curators and collectors from New Zealand, Australia, the USA and Europe. She says: "I want my photographs to ask questions and to be rich with narrative possibilities. At the same time I try to evoke atmospheres that oscillate between melancholy and desire". In early 2010, Thornley created a new suite of images for the annual exhibition of emerging photographers at Stills Gallery, Sydney. Her presentation at Tim Melville Gallery will include an edition of these works.
