Horsham Regional Art Gallery will present works by leading Australian photo-based artist Pat Brassington when her exhibition opens on Saturday.

Curated by Juliana Engberg, artistic director of the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, the exhibition, titled Pat Brassington: À Rebours, brings together several significant works from Brassington’s 30-year career.

Pat Brassington was one of the first artists to recognise the potential of the digital format, and has used it to create an enormous body of work.

Horsham Regional Art Gallery director Adam Harding said the images were hauntingly beautiful, deeply psychological, and sometimes disturbing.

“Her works reference the tradition of surrealist photography,” he said.

“Recurring motifs usually include interior and domestic spaces and strange bodily mutations that take place within the human, predominantly female, form. The manipulation of the image is restrained, but the effect often uncanny and dramatic.”
