Hands All Over is a comment on how convenience, industrialisation and modern materials are impacting the natural world, and will be exhibited at fortyfivedownstairs in April 2018.
In today’s world, it is virtually impossible to live without plastics. As a photographer, Serap Osman is acutely aware of the fact given the materials used in contemporary lenses, cameras, computers and so on invariably contain more and more plastic. The transition away from metals and more traditional construction materials has happened in plain sight, yet seems to have somehow crept up on us.
Serap Osman is a fine art photographer based in Melbourne, Australia. She studied at Gazi University in Ankara, Turkey and RMIT, Melbourne.
Osman has exhibited internationally in group shows and has been awarded for her black & white and landscape work. Her recent work has focused on abstract landscape and objects in the landscape, culminating in the work being exhibited today.
Hands All Over is her first solo exhibition in Melbourne.
