Visual Ideas to be Developed


Ancient Mountainlr.jpg Caption: John Reid Little Big Rock. Notional Idea No1 – Perceptual (one act) plays. Comment: Searching for images that present a perceptual play. In this instance visually connecting a solitary rock to the horizon line so that it reads as a distant peak that extends to a bolder in front of the viewer. Suggesting the proposition that the rock is the residue of an ancient mountain in an ancient continent. A survivor, just beside the road, of a remarkable geological process.

RockScanWeb.jpgCaption: John Reid Goobarragandra Gallery. Notional Idea No2 – Reconfiguring objects in space.Comment: Combination of scanning and lens distortion to create a composite visual experience not available in real life. In this case even the real life cultural experience is illusive and fleeting.

Goobarra Valley 07lr.jpgCaption: John Reid Goobarragandra Valley. Notional Idea No3 – Revelling in the light of the Goobarragandra Valley.Comment: Light play on physical forms and vegetation detail is the substance of the aesthetic experience walking in the Goobarragandra Valley.


Goobarra R 4lr.jpgCaption: John Reid Goobarragandra River. Notional Idea No4 – Affirmatory images of the Tumut region rivers.Comment: Visual documentation of these natural assets is important.
