Peter Abrahams: Double-Space

Peter Abrahams: Double-Space
Library Shelf Location 18.ABRA
Publication Date 2009
Description Peter Abrahams’ first solo exhibition with the Eagle Gallery introduces a new body of photographic works which fall into two categories. A sequence of diptychs entitled The Active and Contemplative Life combine ‘found’ images taken from the urban environment – the upper panel showing the trace of human presence and the lower, a more abstracted architectural detail (which call into mind Abrahams’ earlier elegant and minimal paintings on canvas). In counterpoint to these are two series of large-scale still lifes: Illuminations and Vanitas - photographs that mobilize a profoundly painterly mise-en-scène.
