Digital Photograph

The Provider

Public Description: 

The Australian landscape, scenic backdrops, costumes, masks and theatrical settings are woven into Papapetrou’s imagery, along with themes of children role playing complex narratives of loss, innocence, body, veil and dream. Presenting these sometimes unsettling themes is the intention of the artist’s work. This large digital photographic print, The Provider, from the series Between Worlds (2009-2012), depicts two school girls, both wearing horse head masks, positioned in the foreground of a Victorian High Country location.
