Surface Gallery is proud to announce the return of the NTU Photography Degree Show, showcasing the work of talented collective, Lotus.

Just as the seven petals of a lotus come together, this exhibition is a collaboration from seven female creatives. From the exploration of a space through landscape photography (Victoria Colquhoun-Postill), intricate line work and image combinations (Georgia Spencer), to humorous yet thoughtful self-portraits (Deeanna Thorpe), the focus of the work shifts from artist to artist. Lotus features the work of seven final year NTU photography students, from stills to moving image and sound, in a range of subject matter.

The work displayed has been collected over the last year from all over the country, celebrating a three-year long development each of these artists has gone through stylistically and thematically, before they enter the world of industry.

Welcome to Lotus.

Lotus opens in the Main Gallery Space, in conjunction with Novus in the Project Space, both part of the same city-wide photography festival, Off The Screen. A bar will be provided with complimentary drinks from the Lotus team. As always, there will also be a donations bar with ales from local brewery, Springhead.

Free Entry: Everyone Welcome
