Beau-Ingle’s studio portraiture aims to see beyond human flesh revealing beauty that is the mini universe inside us. Her work paints a picture of a soul and discloses something that is hidden within - particularly exploring veiled desires and the inner subconscious. While Beau-Ingle's work aims to represent a kind of truth about the sitter, Agnese Reverie's photographs are on voyage from the known, deeply engaging with the mysterious. By staging her own realities her work taps into the surreal of the mind and through shifting reality present the familiar in new, imaginative ways.
Escapism is explored by both artists, as well as the theme of the clandestine ‘secret’ that smirks at the world in its power to forever keep something hidden, considering the possibility that there exists no ultimate ‘truth’.
In the act of concealing an identity one is simultaneously revealing something else entirely. As Diane Arbus said, ‘A Photograph is a secret about a secret. The more you see, the less you know.’ Imagination fuels the image. The photograph reveals something about its subject, an intimate reciprocal confession. These works present a fantasy fuelled sphere where the viewer is invited to build upon the visible, exploring the mysterious world of being that forever hides beneath a facade.
