Photographer Brooke Holm first came to our attention when we featured one of her stunning artworks in a Melbourne home designed by Little Liberty Interiors. Brooke’s upcoming exhibition titled Salt and Sky, showcases her amazing landscape photography of salt fields in Western Australia.

“...shot from above, create graphic compositions with painterly textures in delicious pastel ice-cream hues.”
This exciting new body of work by Brooke Holm is truly breathtaking. It’s hard to believe that these are actual aerial photographs of the Western Australian landscape. These salt ponds and harvested fields shot from above, create graphic compositions with painterly textures in delicious pastel ice-cream hues.
“At a distance they can be enjoyed as pure studies in colour and composition but on closer inspection the smooth, creamy and powdery textures of the works are palpable as is the sensation of a breeze as it whips up the surface of the ponds,” says exhibition curator and Modern Times director Amy Malin.
Salt And Sky will be Brooke’s last show in Australia for quite some time as she is set to head off for New York mid-show where her star will no doubt continue to rise. Join Brooke in person at the exhibition opening night on Thursday 23 June from 6-8pm for a celebratory drink and a gander at these delightful artworks in the flesh at The Modern Times.
When: 23 June - 7 July 2016
