More details

The images in Bill Henson’s cinematic new body of work, The Liquid Night, derive from work the highly acclaimed artist shot on 35mm colour negative film in New York City in 1989. They present a kaleidoscopic, nocturnal journey through the frenetic, neon-lit streets of a long-lost America.

They were shot as formal 35mm frames and served as images in quest of an artistic resolution which Bill Henson became besotted with and which he has now resolved in digital terms creating a compendium of new art which is a recapitulation of a world that has vanished like an all but forgotten dream that tugs at the mind as a set of animated emblems that no longer exist in contemporary reality.

Bill Henson is an Australian contemporary photographer known for his chiaroscuro and bokeh effects. He had his first exhibition in 1975 at the National Gallery of Victoria. His work includes themes of music, beauty, and longing, often featuring adolescents and landscapes. Henson now focuses on urban and rural landscapes with a romantic, melancholic feel.
