  • Artist Statement & Bio

    Standing amongst the unique rock formations known as “Drawing Room Rocks”, my instinct draws me to the very edge of the escarpment plateau. Called to the void, I am reminded of the German philosopher, Friedrich Nietzsche’s observation that “if you gaze long enough into an abyss, the abyss also gazes into you” Captured during the winter of 2019, Rollei camera (circa ‘93), Ilford 35mm film  Artist Bio Nikki Easterbrook is a visual artist working in the field of photography and moving image. She holds a Bachelor of Visual Arts, Honours first class in Photomedia from the University of Sydney and has over 15 years of professional photography experience working in Asia and Australia. Easterbrook’s practice utilises technical photographic methods to launch philosophical enquiries into the nature of place, time and space. In her practice, the materiality of the photograph itself is explored through experimental means of self-reflection, producing large format photographs of vast expanses emphasising the infinity of nature, and the representation of its presence. Her work has been exhibited nationally and she is the recipient of numerous prestigious art awards, most recent being the 2020 Gosford Regional Art Prize. Nikki Easterbrook
