Susan Blight

Proof 15 puts a notable twist on the formula with artists from Gallery 44's inaugural artist residency, featuring the work of Keesic Douglas and Susan Blight, both emerging photo-based aboriginal artists. Even though the exhibition retains its free, spontaneous spirit, with the inclusion of Douglas and Blight a subtle energy permeates the show, informed by the performative style and sly wit both artists share.
