Ashley Jones-Evans: Sea Gods

November 20, 2021 - January 29, 2022

Ashley Jones-Evans, Wayne Lynch. Glace archival Print, 112 x 147cm. Courtesy: the artist and Shoalhaven Regional Gallery, Nowra.

In more than 40 portraits of Australian surfing identities, shot between 1997 and 1999, award winning photographer Ashley Jones-Evans has created a pantheon of gods; a photographic collection of heroes and trailblazers who made Australian surfing history.

The powerful images of surfers – both those who have disappeared from history books and those who inspired recent generations – call on classical statuary to render these men and women as heroes and gods. Shot in monochromatic tones, each surfer is posed vertically against an infinite and blinding horizon line. The crispness and detail of these images ensures the viewer is also the subject, assessed by the eyes of the Sea Gods.
