Exhibition: Grant me the serenity – Dave Carswell

Grant me the serenity is a character study set in the remote mountains of western lutruwita/Tasmania documenting Peter, an enigmatic and creative individual who migrated to the area six years ago. Peter lives on the cusp of change both in his personal life and amongst the social and environmental developments that play out within the landscape that he inhabits. The work draws together the juxtapositions of intimacy and expanse with humour whilst examining themes of isolation, relational tension, mortality and escapism.

Dave Carswelis a photographer currently based in lutruwita/Tasmania. His photographic practice is rooted in documentary image making with his interests motivated by the intersection between nature, humanity and the built environment. Carswell’s work is concerned with the manner of anthropological intervention on the built landscape with a recent focus towards public space and the way economic, social and ecological influences shape contested spaces.
