“Justine Varga creates imagery that is minimal and sublime. Although she uses analogue techniques and works with great control of the craft, the results seem liberated from their medium to become more akin to abstract paintings. The delicate and balanced compositions evidence Varga’s obvious delight in the idiosyncrasies of light and film. Varga often depicts anonymous and simple spaces, inner sanctums that give pause for reflection. In Moving Out, she pays elegant homage to her art studio, a site that gave rise to many of her works and also to one of her first exhibitions. As with earlier images from the series Empty Studio (2009), the emptiness of her work space is transformed with the addition of a few bits of string, a scrap of board or a shimmer of light into a somewhat magical and invested place” – Justine Varga.
Justine Varga – Moving Out, Stills Gallery, 10 October to 10 November 2012. Opening Sat 13 October, 3-5pm.
