Rohan Hutchinson, from Kanazawa Study
Kanazawa Study is a series of large digital collages by Rohan Hutchinson. He uses a 10×8 inch view camera to capture details and textures of architectural surfaces in a historic locality in Japan. The images have a Zen quality, very cool and detached. They are assembled with great precision to contrast texture, colour and space creating ‘virtual architectural realms.’ I can imagine them looking at home in some Minimalist interior.
Hutchinson explores how the difference in architectural design and materials has changed throughout diverse time frames and class systems in the Kanazawa region of Japan, giving a 500-year overview of architectural practice within the region.
The exhibition is at the Colour Factory Gallery in Fitzroy
