Van Aurich’s ‘Hopefully..’ is Lynchian imagery at its finest. In this mini-series, curated specifically for the first artists series by Heimur, he has captured three mundane moments imbued with an undeniable element of the macabre. Themes of Australiana and romance are subtly referenced by way of colour and motif, adding a sense of foreboding that begs the question: what has happened, and what will happen next?.
Perth born, Melbourne based Luke van Aurich is a self-taught photographer, interested in presenting his work in unconventional manners, without explanation, so as to allow viewer subjectivity.
All images are an edition of 3, printed on Museo Portfolio Rag & framed in solid American Oak with Australian Redgum splines.
