Twilight Artists; Grafton Regional Gallery Jude McBean

Building by artists Victoria Cooper and Doug Spowart.

THE two nocturnal artists roaming about Grafton and the Clarence Valley have attracted a lot of comments through their Nocturne: Grafton Project.

Victoria Cooper and Doug Spowart are enjoying capturing the new and the old, and even the in-between, of Grafton in a series of photographs taken just on twilight. You can follow their project on Facebook.

Cooper and Spowart collaborate to investigate and navigate the site and place in the Australian natural and urban landscape. Through their photography they explore the social, historical, scientific and mythological aspects of the sites they capture in full colour.

The artists have created an informal display of their photographs in the Grafton Regional Gallery's studio space, where the artists work in the morning before venturing out to capture their twilight images. Everyone is welcome to come and talk to the artists and engage with their project.

Cooper and Spowart are interdisciplinary visual artists, who create visual narratives through online media, artists' books, photo books, zines and images. They have collaborated on many art projects and exhibitions of book works that have featured their room and car camera equipment and techniques.

Their practice also extends to education; both as students and teachers. Both have lectured nationally on the topic of the photo book and artists' book, and their book works are held in the artists' books, rare book and manuscript collections in the Artspace Mackay, the state libraries of Queensland and Victoria, the National Library of Australia and in the USA.

The residency of the two artists is made possible through the support of Arts NSW and continues until Friday, September27.
