KAB Gallery, Terrigal

Fiona Henderson has created an enigmatic piece with the photographic medium. Melancholia #13 oozes a deep sense of loneliness and solitude. The vertical orientation of the artwork presents a somewhat unsettling feeling but invites the eye to look closely and observe the flower. These details bring together a unique and moving work perfect for a contemporary space. This artwork would be best positioned in a place where the viewer could rest and ponder.

As deep red lilies cascade over this glowing skull, the viewer is immediately drawn to question the medium. Is this a photograph and how has the artist achieved this? As a photographer, Fiona uses cutting edge techniques to revisit the still-life and the symbolism of objects. A contemporary artist reinvigorating the Nature-Morte tradition, to see one photograph leaves the viewer wanting to view the entire series. An enchanted sequence from a talented new media artist to watch.

For centuries the skull has been used symbolically, representing death in many cultures. The red flowers are symbolic of passion, beauty and innocence. Flowers show us the beauty and fragility of life. Here the flowers, set against the ultra-white skull and an ominous dark background, create a contemporary and stunning work which to me is all about the passion and fleeting beauty of life.
