Concealer presents the work of five contemporary artists working with photography, photo collage and video. The artists in Concealer seemingly turn their backs on conventional photographic representation and instead explore and build new abstract languages and visual systems. The artworks on display either bear little resemblance to our recognisable visual world or actively attempt to obfuscate through strategies of abstraction. In a time when the potency of the photographic image as a fast, digital carrier of information continues to proliferate, the artworks that form Concealer, intentionally conceal rather than reveal.
