The Third Quarter were pleased to host Brisbane based photographer Daniel Grima with 'Purple Eye Bags, The Unmoving Cloud and All of This Anticipation' from October 25 - 31, 2019.
The photographs in 'Purple Eye Bags, The Unmoving Cloud and All of This Anticipation' hearkened to a lost era from photography’s history, free from the consuming self-reflexivity which has come to characterise much contemporary photographic practice.
Instead, Grima’s images remind us of photography’s simple yet extraordinary capacity for visual poetry, nestled in between the medium’s necessarily unadorned visual language and the seemingly unshakeable transcendental undertones that come from its ability to capture moments in their purest form.
This exhibition was a testament to Grima’s penchant for capturing such moments of everyday poetry.
