Chris Meredith will be giving an exclusive tour of his works in Whimsy. Come along to listen to the artist as he discusses How to capture a Mermaid and his fascinating techniques that have given him this mastery of whimsical illusion in his artworks. Meredith is an award winning photographer based on Sydney’s North Shore. “I started taking photos when I was 12 and I’ve been on a mission to capture beauty on film (or pixel) ever since. A keen swimmer, I love to shoot in or near the ocean.” Meredith’s work is driven by a desire to encourage the eye to escape into extraordinary and beautiful places. Mermaids of Balmoral is an investigation into the lives of 3 troublesome but enchanting mermaids (Almora, Lavoni and Cobbittee) that inhabit the skies above and seas below Balmoral Beach. To create his haunting scenes, Meredith works in an underwater studio with specialist models who are experts in creating graceful poses in a weightless environment. The resulting images are then combined with dramatic skyscapes, which are often captured at dawn, the best time for mermaids and artists to make fleeting contact.
