Eva Fernandez is rapidly emerging as one of Perth's important photographers. She studies photography at Charles Sturt University in NSW, graduating in 1992, and has studies at the Central Institute of Technology and Edith Cowan University in Perth since then. Her photographs can be founds in the collections of the Art Gallery of WA, Murdoch University, Joondalup City Council, Central Institute of Technology and Charles Sturt University.
The images above are part of '(terra) australis incognita'¬†which shows large format, exquisitely detailed images of couches and chairs pulled apart, some with native flora growing out of the upholstery. Seductive and witty, the photos reveal states of order and chaos which Fernandez uses as a means to scrutinize, head-on, the often detoured, often rocky ground, of colonialism and reconciliation in Australian culture.
