Objects and Reasons

Painted objects, painted photographs, photographed painted objects … and reasons for giving flowers.

Objects and Reasons, an exhibition of artwork by Cathy Tuato’o Ross, has just returned from Photospace Gallery in Wellington. The images are made using interchanging combinations of drawing, painting and photography, which has resulted in the creation of optical illusions. Conventional still life objects and arrangements are played with, and familiar items such as cups, bowls and flowers are reduced to outlines. The artist says that she grew up loving the oddity of the black and white diagrams (devoid of all visual information but the finest outline), which accompanied glossy photographs in coffee table books, and were intended to tell you what it was you were looking at in the illustration. The Objects series is accompanied by a shockingly vibrant group of painted photographs of bouquets. These are titled by the reason that the bouquet was made – for example, consolation, remorse or condolence.
