Tony Lamont – Our Internal Shadows
14 August - 27 September
Exhibition dates for this period are currently tentative. Umbrella is responding to individual artists while the gallery remains closed to protect staff and visitors while COVID-19 and physical distancing restrictions are in place. We look forward to your visit when we can reopen. Please join our eNews or follow our social media for updates as they arise.
Tony Lamont’s highly saturated digital prints recontextualise elements from black and white chest X-rays. The digital image processes are cathartic to the artist, relieving stressful years he spent working in clinical medicine and radiology. The images also illuminate spiritual aspects of medical processes – “seeing” through the dark glass of technology internal bodily structures, things not visible to the naked eye.
