As published in The Islander newspaper 16 February 2017.
Acclaimed Kangaroo Island photographer Mr Quentin Chester will be one of two concurrent exhibitors at Chancery Lane Gallery, for the 2017 Adelaide Fringe.
Set across their main gallery space, Quentin’s exhibition ‘Isle Light’ explores wild shorelines, intimate forest portraits and still-life studies in stone, with the island’s wild landscapes featuring throughout.
“My work is about capturing those uncanny moments in nature – moments that are surprising, a bit mysterious and often humbling,” Quentin said.
“As well-known as it is, Kangaroo Island is still very much a frontier. We’re still learning about the island’s wilder parts, still discovering things.”
Quentin Chester, who has won countless awards, has contributed to Australian Geographic and Wild for more than 30 years, and his books include Australia’s Wild Islands and The Kimberley: Horizons of Stone.
Chancery Lane Gallery Director Mr Jessy Khera is delighted to provide the venue for this interesting and captivating exhibition.
“We invite everyone to visit the Gallery during the Fringe Festival and examine Quentin’s relationship with the nature that surrounds him, living on Kangaroo Island,” Jessy said.
“The other main exhibitor is Amy Pfitzner and special guests will join the exhibition as well,” Jessy said.
The exhibition will run at Chancery Lane Gallery, 24 Chancery Lane, Adelaide from February 22 to March 31, with the opening night function on Thursday February 23 at 6.00pm.
