'Urban' by Eric Schusser.

This exhibition is a series of photographs exploring the urban environment - its colour, texture and patterns.

Photographers statement:

In 2019 my wife, Annemarie, underwent cancer treatment in Auckland - twelve treatments of ten days each...when everything went to plan. When I took photographs I was in a new large urban city environment rather than my familiar wide-open Central Otago landscapes. This led to a series of urban graphic projects which has been very exciting to see unfold - bold colours and textures have opened my eyes to a new way of seeing and exploring the landscape in general. Being in an urban area has also meant more exposure to other photographers, galleries and art in general, which has helped to expand my horizons in terms of what is possible and what is contemporary. I have also continued to explore the combinations of image and text and their ability to paint a bigger picture and to engage people at a more visceral level. This has given rise to our publication 'Still Intrusion', a photographic exploration of Annemarie's cancer journey and my role as the main carer.

Eric Schusser is a photographic artist from Alexandra. He is a member of the Hullabaloo artists collective and specialises in fine art prints and social documentary work. He has exhibited in group and solo shows in Rotorua, Alexandra, Cromwell, Wellington and Wanaka.
