An Exhibition of Two Major Collections of Images by Photographic Artist Peter Garnick. Constructive Ragpickings features abstract construction imagery from the site of The Women's Hospital Parkville. Curative Curiosities is drawn from Antique Medical Instruments and Pharmaceutical Objects from The Women's Hospital and the University of Melbourne Collections. This exhibition captures imagery of found arrangements of colourful and textured building materials from the building site which is now the Royal Women’s Hospital.The resulting artwork presents an alternative and creative view of the chosen environment by revealing some of its inconspicuous elegance.The visual deceptions of form and scale turn the images of an unpopulated construction site into remarkable, scaleless landscapes that dance and march in repetition and rhythm, while the intriguing photographic imagery drawn from antique medical and pharmaceutical objects is characterised by mystifying views of the man-made environment. Boston-born Peter Garnick has been a photographer for nearly 40 years. His work has been exhibited overseas and in Australia, and he is represented inpublic, private and corporate collections in the United States of America, United Kingdom and Australia.
