Her Eye is a show of diverse work from 3 female artists who use a camera and the photographic process as their art making tools. They share a strong connection to the tradition of the photographic, adding to it through their own response to the world through the camera lens. More than that is their deeper connection as women in concert within a shared generation who recognise and embrace the intangible gauze that the feminine filter layers subtly and fundamentally in their work... this is ‘Her Eye’.

Each artist works in individual ways within their own personal lens or perspective and this is evident in the works shown. It is the fulfilment found in their creative work and the bond of mutuality they feel that underpins this show.
