  Vanishing into the landscape
NZ Herald August 23

Polixeni Papapetrou and Valerie Sparks at Roger Williams Contemporary, 61 Randolph St, Newton, to Sep 13

Photography has given artists powerful technology to explore their ideas.

The challenge is to measure the result of its success in conveying the ideas, rather than being an artefact of the production process.

Two Melbourne artists who go beyond the technology are sharing space at Roger Williams Contemporary Gallery off Upper Queen St.

Polixeni Papapetrou shows several works from her Haunted Country series, which use stories of lost children to explore the relationship Australians have with their landscape.
 
Comments:
The tools of the trade are not substitutes for innovative imagination. Unfortunately, the tedious visual images 'created' by Papapetrou are a good substitute for valium.
