“With this work I was interested in portraying tipping points where the facade of normalcy starts to slip,” said Al.
Al says the work is borne out of his interest in contemporary culture, particularly its influence or effect on individuals.
“I find the creative possibilities to be endless.”
Although each concept shoot in the series was planned, the final result often differed from the original visualisation.
“Shooting these projects out in the world, random stuff happens that can bring something special,” said Al.
He cites the ‘the laughing girl’ as an example where a random girl cracking up in the background had the effect of heightening the sense of despair in the image.
With the exhibition Al wants to share the creative experience – though he thinks the audience that could get most out of it hasn’t been born yet.”
“Because my work is visually anchored in the present, I have the feeling it will become more interesting as this reality is left behind.”
“At the same time many of the themes I’m exploring like alienation are, I’m sure, universal over time.”
The exhibition will be held in the Thuringowa Civic Centre, North Queensland between 6 April and 1 May 2016.
