“Many of the photos in this exhibition have been inspired by my Journey through Breast Cancer and the treatment of it. They are about me getting out, hunting for and capturing the light through what could have been dark days in my life. It is about energy, action and light translated into art work through the camera. I have been lucky to have photography as a passion and constant in my life, it has allowed me to transcend my condition and to keep me creating new and exciting works.”
Marion Vincent's exhibition, "Dynamic Light", continues until Saturday, May 28. View exhibition online at http://www.quadrantgallery.com.au/marion-vincent.html

Artist of the Week: Focus on Glenn Guy (nos 3, 7, 10; pigment print on archival paper, 40.6 x 70 cm, $450 each)
"My images deal with what it is to be human. They have helped me understand my own personal journey and to resonate that outwards into the poetry of the everyday and beyond, towards that certain inner beauty found in simple things. Through the production of a living diary this process of photographic documentation has allowed me to record my own life’s history. To live the life I dream and to share that dream, my vision of the world, is the ultimate outcome."
Glenn Guy's exhibition "Moment of Transition" continues until Saturday, 28 June. View the exhibition online at http://www.quadrantgallery.com.au/glenn-guy.html
