Monday - Friday: 9 am - 5 pm
INSIDE by Adrien Broom
Sep 06-Nov 14
Adrien Broom is an image-maker and visual storyteller. As a photographer, fine artist and set designer, Adrien infuses a sense of magic and wonder into the images she creates.
Broom uses the medium of photography to enact her artistic vision however she approaches it from a cinematic point of view, finding a location, sourcing material and building an environment for her actor to inhabit. Her artistic practice resembles the working methodology of Gregory Crewdson to a degree, but from a more sculptural and surreal direction. Her imagery has echoes of Tim Walker’s photography, with the fantastical compositions she creates. Whether she is building elaborate sets or relying on the beauty of the natural world, Broom creates images that are familiar, otherworldly and fantastical with a touch of foreboding.
