Brooke Holm Debuts New Abstract Aerial Landscapes At Denfair

Fitzroy design store Modern Times will debut a new exhibition from New York-based photographer, Brooke Holm, at their Denfair stand this week.

Later this week at DenfairModern Times will show a new exhibition of aerial landscape photographs from American/Australian photographer Brooke Holm.

Known for her impeccable control of proportion, colour and light, this latest body of work from Brooke, Sea Lake*, transports viewers high above ground level to a bird’s-eye view of Lake Tyrrell**, the shallow, salt-crusted body of water in Victoria’s north-west. The evidence of early human impact in the area tells that it is among the first-known sites inhabited by humans in Victoria and Tasmania.

Brooke’s eye for texture and colour transform these aerial landscape shots into something monumental and abstract. These textural, curving pastel pools could just as easily be a contemporary painting upon first glance, and each image in the series gives the viewer a powerful understanding of the significance of the natural world.

In addition to the debut of Brooke’s Sea Lake series and a select edit of furniture, other artists exhibiting new works at the Modern Times stand include best-sellers Nicolette Johnson, Tessy King, Ellie Malin, Zhu Ohmu, Saxon Quinn and Stacey Rees.

While Denfair is an industry-only event this Thursday and Friday, the contemporary design fair opens to the public on Saturday, June 16th.

*Sea Lake was originally commissioned by Salta for a project designed by architects Bates Smart, in collaboration with Jane the Agency, to celebrate local artists and designers creating exceptional work in their field.

**Brooke would like to acknowledge the traditional land owners of Lake Tyrell and its surrounds, the Boorong clan, and pay her respects to Elders past and present.
