Following on from her standout exhibition in Los Angeles in June 2016, Mild Manners Gallery is proud to present a special off-site exhibition - Aurelia, by Australian photographer Sylvé Colless.
Building on her earlier exhibitions this collection continues a line of inquiry into the ways that the dual influences of harmony and chaos profoundly shape our psyche and sense of individuality. Aurelia is synonymous with the butterfly chrysalis and also conjures ideas associated with gold. Process and change are the core of existence, with this comes renewal.
This series looks into shared and solitary transformational human experience. Each image represents the flow of energy in the process of personal change: waves that permeate and ricochet, the body itself becomes a reflective surface. The language of light is central and the enduring impression carries the suggestion of enlightenment.
Colless’ portfolio continues to expand internationally, a reaction to her achievements and hunger to constantly evolve her aesthetic. Her personal and commercial work has been featured by publications including Vogue(Aus),
Harpers Bazaar (Aus), Elle (Australia, France, Norway & Portugal) & Russh.
