Photo-Retro: George Schwarz

A photographic exhibition at Black Eye Gallery.

A retrospective of one of Australia’s most interesting and diverse artists.

George Schwarz’s oeuvre goes beyond the genre of autobiography to touch on universal themes of human experience: sex, death and the unconscious.

Schwarz’s Photo-Retro exhibition challenges prevailing canons and histories of Australian photography. Shown as a collection spanning over four decades, Schwarz’s images operate as vehicles across the structures of time and memory. They resonate with sensuality, pathos and humour.

Often at odds to prevailing tastes, Schwarz captures images in colour with painterly complex compositions with a rich archaeological content. The collage of objects and unexpected amalgamations of visual influences create surreal layers of meaning, blurring the line between the real and symbolic, life and art.
