Coming up next at Hugo Michell Gallery, Trent Parke presents a new body of work in ‘The Crimson Line’. For Parke's new series industrial landscapes are merged with ethereal cloudscapes, a splicing of atmospheres and binaries. Life and death, light and shadow, space and time, memory. These are the themes that have always been at the forefront of Parke’s work. 'The Crimson Line' continues to explore these ideas. Cinematic in his vision, Parkes work has always been firmly established in film Noir. From the micro to the macro, science, genetics, factory lines, laboratories and processing plants. Global warming, consumerism and beauty, his landscapes provide a backdrop that frames a dark and foreboding narrative of strange truth and fiction. Exhibition opens 31 October from 6pm!
