Truth and Beauty share David Niddrie’s Rough Diamonds

Sunday, August 4th, 2019

Truth and Beauty Digital Gallery is pleased to present David Niddrie’s Rough Diamonds.

 

” Rough Diamonds is a series manipulating photographic images into reflective patterns. My interest is in exploring angles and perception, taking in a micro and macro frame of mind, by looking at urban infrastructure on a grand scale taken down to street level. I look for repetition in a natural state, and one altered by humankind – the abstraction of familiarity.

This series began in 2006 with scanned prints from colour film, fine-tuned until new patterns resonated with me. A few years later, I shifted to digital captures to have larger images to work with. I work with the architecture of our city towers, streetscapes, roadways; objects such as raw meat, bicycle parts, fishing nets; and fragments of forest, fire, and water from time spent in the wilderness.
I am still seeking out these elusive moments. It’s only when I can push past the form before me – to find the hidden relationships within the scene – do these diamond patterns reveal themselves.” — David Niddrie
