Orchids are without doubt one of the world’s most exquisite flowers and for renowned Australian photographer Larnce Gold, they presented a unique challenge in capturing their ethereal beauty.
In his first solo show, Larnce is exhibiting his incredible work in his new series called Orcaedia at the iconic Sun Studios in Sydney’s Alexandria and The Carousel is proud to be one of the sponsors.
Orcaedia comprises of 18 images of Moth Orchids and Larnce’s photography was inspired by the miracle of budding orchids and the resilience of the plants, their ability to regenerate and their inherent beauty.
The exhibition aims to explore a combination of botanic abstractions and quiet meditations on the Moth orchid or Phalaenopsis.
“I was inspired by the colours and shapes these flowers hold and the feelings they evoke,” Larnce told The Carousel.
“By magnifying the perspective of the subject I hope to draw the viewer more deeply into the works, thus inviting them to experience the abstract beauty in daily life and to notice the way they can make you feel. When you realise what you are looking at, you might take a moment to think, ‘Wow, these are flowers, and they’re everywhere. Nature is a uniquely capable artist.”
Guests attending the opening will be treated to musical performances from Ilan Kidron (Potbeleez) & Glenn Shorrock.
Proceeds from the event will be donated to Sydney Children’s Hospital.
Check out the event information on Facebook and RSVP before Monday 26th June.
