The Present Perfect

About this image

Whangarei Fritter Festival

Combining his love of alt photo processing and drawing, Grant Beran masterfully creates unique photochemical drawings. Beran's quirky contemporary works are full of colour and humour. This body of work came out of a recent interest in Pinterest.

"I found it fascinating that you could search various topics such as photography, travel, soccer, art and Pinterest’s algorithms would use these separate search words to put together a body of work- like an exhibition- on your Pinterest home page for you to consider. And then, by simply refreshing your Pinterest home page, a whole new body of work would come together; like an ever revolving cycle of virtual exhibitions.

I found these groupings of imagery had a wonderfully eclectic cohesiveness to them. Fascinated and inspired by this, I wanted to create a real life/real space exhibition that reflects this weirdly cohesively eclectic selection of imagery and have it intersect with my ongoing engagement with imagery from contemporary art and art history and see what happens." - GB
