Heidi Romano
I started “Frozen Water” two years ago – an idea inspired by the fast dwindling icebergs. I have no means to travel to the Arctic, so I made my own ice landscapes. The more I worked on the project, the more it came down to my fascination with a single atom of water. An ice sheet, natural light, and a macro lens transformed my water into an abstract painting, full of form, texture and hues of colour. Something to explore, discover and dive into. The tiniest shift of focus transforms these images completely. It is captivating to see an image transform from something mundane into an abstract, almost unrecognisable shape. It is this kind of abstraction that enables us to feel we have discovered, and are looking at the essence of “Frozen Water.”

Annalee Fortunado
Women with disability are often invisible.1 Although there are national policies, international conventions and laws, women with disability are among the more vulnerable and marginalised of society. Over eight months photographer Annalee Fortunado produced Invisible Visible, a book about women with disability who share their story the way they would like it to be told through a series of portraits and narrative. Six of the women share their story for the exhibition, Stillness at Gallery Eight. The exhibition is aptly titled Stillness, the state or an instance of being quiet or calm. It is in this space, these women invite the viewer to see beyond disability, challenge their own attitudinal encounters and see the multi-layers of their story.

“WomenWatch: Feature on Women with Disabilities” last modified May 25, 2012

Shana Rossiter’s work originates from her experimental approach to life. She uses photography as a medium to capture the unnoticed and unseen. Milk and Flowers stems from her fascination with light and shadow. Shadows have the ability to create shapes that abstract the viewers gaze and it is these shapes she chose to focus on. Her work tends to focus on the human form and she incorporates nature with the naked body to create a peaceful, calm and still image.
