9-10 August, 16-17 August
University Gallery, Callaghan campus
Critically acclaimed artist and Masters of Fine Art (Photography) student Alexia Sinclair is exhibiting her award winning photographic portraiture series 'The Regal Twelve' at the University Gallery.
'The Regal Twelve' series is a suite of pictures depicting historical females who have ruled their kingdoms, including Marie Antoinette, Queen Elizabeth I and Cleopatra.
It combines photography, illustration, European backdrops, fashion models, historical treasures and symbolic references, digitally montaged to create works based on historical truths.
In May this year Sinclair won the inaugural Harpers BAZAAR and Canon fashion photography award, with the pictures receiving acclaim for their professional finish and highly stylised looks.
Sinclair has been working as a fine art photographer and digital artist for over a decade and now works as a freelance artist on campaigns and commissions including working as a digital artist in New York.
'The Regal Twelve' will be shown at the University Gallery, Callaghan campus, the University of Newcastle, on 9/10 and 16/17 August from midday - 6pm. The official opening will be held Friday 10 August from 6 - 7.30pm.
