Threshold: Dirk de Bruyn, Guy Grabowsky, Mat Hughes

Threshold brings together the disparate practices of senior film maker/animator Dirk de Bruyn, photographer Guy Grabowsky, and photographer/printmaker Mat Hughes.

These artists share an interest in constructing photographic and filmic imagery through analogue processes, manually engaging with the processing phase to create images in dialogue with traditional techniques.

From Grabowsky’s scratched and textured abstract photographs and Hughes’ cyanotypes toned with botanical materials, to de Bruyn’s impactful animations featuring drawn and ascribed negative reels, the exhibition presents three different approaches to image making within the genre of photography and film that reveals the artists’ encounter with the materiality of process.
