Aidan Gageler 

Based in Newcastle, b. 1998

Australian artist Aidan Gageler lives and works between Awabakal and Yuin Land (Lake Macquarie/South Coast, NSW). He graduated from Camberwell College of the Arts, UAL (London, UK) with first-class honours. Gageler’s practice thinks through photography’s receptibility, both to light and to sentiment. Curiously, his materials bruise with exposure to time, attesting to a kind of fleshy experience akin to our own.
