July 9 – 31, 2022
Jeff Moorfoot’s ‘conTEXT’ presents a tongue-in-cheek dialogue between image and text, bringing together several discrete bodies of work in a broad pastiche of pictures + words.
As Moorfoot says “any art that doesn’t offend someone, somewhere at some time, ain’t art – it’s decor!”
What do a gravedigger, uni lecturer, gardener, festival director, oil rig worker, welder, and roadie for an Irish pub band all have in common?
Not much really. Probably nothing at all.
But Jeff Moorfoot OAM has been all of them, AND a professional fine art and advertising photographer for 40+ years.
Jeff combines his broad life experience and penchant for the unusual in conTEXT, his 70th solo photographic exhibition. conTEXT is a tongue-in-cheek dialogue between image and text, where you see life through Jeff’s eyes while reading his mind at the same time.
As Jeff says: “Art that doesn’t offend someone, somewhere, at some time, ain’t art – it’s decor!”
conTEXT will show at Maud St Gallery from July 9-31, 2022. Visiting times: Thursday/ Friday 1-5 pm, Saturday/ Sunday 11-4 pm. Free entry.
The show will also feature a seminar, where Jeff talks about his work, and the philosophy that guides his ideas – Sunday, July 10, 4-7 pm.
There will also be a two-day intensive hands-on workshop; you will learn Jeff’s unique workflow of creating art using 3D objects and a flat-bed scanner. Saturday 30 and Sunday 31 July. A limited number of participants.
Fully refundable if the event is canceled.
