Murray Fredericks | The Salt Lake
The salt lake is a major survey exhibition of Murray Fredericks that brings together Salt, Array, Vanityand his most recent series, Blaze. From the earthly to the celestial, the physical to the metaphysical, these exhibitions consider place, time and space in very different ways.
Over the last 20 years, Murray Fredericks has established himself as one of the leading international artists challenging the traditions of landscape photography. In 2003 Murray Fredericks first visited Kati Thanda–Lake Eyre, one of the world’s largest salt lakes, located in the deserts of central Australia. Driven by the boundless potential of abstract space, Fredericks has returned 31 times over the past two decades, exploring perceptual states of being. His chapters, or ‘cycles’ as he calls them, have explored interventions with mirrors, and more recently fire, capturing infinity and the void through the lens of contemplative minimalism. Defined by light, colour and space, Fredericks’s photographs are a phenomenological response to the experience of existing in an ostensibly empty place without scale.
