Acme Studios — Justine Varga

Supporting Artists since 1972

Justine Varga

Australia Council for the Arts Residency

Justine Varga’s work subverts the conventions and connotations of photographic images, employing analogue techniques, sometimes using a camera and sometimes not, to capture instantaneous moments or distil lengthy durational periods. Justine’s camera-less photographs are etched with the materiality of light and the machinations of time. These works foster expanded ways of seeing and thinking as they push against the delineation of artistic mediums.

Justine has exhibited at Tolarno Gallery, Melbourne, Australian Centre for Photography (2017), Govett-Brewster Art Gallery, New Zealand (2016), Paris Photo. (2016), National Gallery of Australia (2015), The Museum of Contemporary Art, The Art Gallery of NSW and The National Art School, Sydney, Heide Museum of Modern Art in Melbourne. She was a finalist in the 2011 Helen Lempriere Travelling Art Scholarship, and has work in the collection of Art Gallery of NSW.
