Sydney artist Carrie Webster will be presenting an exhibition at the The Essential Ingredient Cafe in Rozelle from May 12th to June 8th 2014. The pieces for the exhibition will comprise of a series of unique digital images that incorporate the use of fruit and vegetables, forming part of her latest series “Darkness & Light”. The images are whimsical dreamscapes, with elements of darkness that borrow from both mythology and fairy tales. Captured through contrasting visual components, the series conjure stories interwoven with a combination of playful and quirky characters that contrast with elements of darkness and mystery.

Each image tells a unique tale, and each contains at least one type of fruit or vegetable that has been transformed into sometimes unrecognisable objects. The artist created the series to explore the presence of opposing forces in both our universal experiences and in our personal worlds. The series is all about story telling through compelling visuals weaved amongst haunting and surreal landscapes and unusual characters. The aim is to engage the viewer and provoke deeper reflection on the possible range of narratives occurring within each image.

Carrie photographs all the individual elements for her images and then uses Photoshop to create stories with them. Some images may take a day to complete, and some may take a couple of months. “The images, while telling a story, capture elements of opposing forces, such as darkness and light, good and evil, fear and courage” says artist Carrie Webster of her latest series. “These opposite elements are made all the more intriguing when the viewer recognizes that the characters or landscape elements are made from vegetables!”
