About the Artist

***

Eamon Wyss is a fine art drone photographer based in Melbourne, Australia, with a strong fascination for the ephemeral nature of Australian salt lakes. As a lifelong multi-disciplinary artist, he has explored interactive festival design, user-experience design, and experimental video art.

Now in his preferred form of self-expression, he has developed a distinct creative style, in which he transforms natural landscapes into abstract imagery without manipulating the photographs from their original colour and form. Instead he pays meticulous attention to detail while composing his works from the air, seeking out what he describes as 'contemporary dreaming stories’ formed naturally in the shapes and colours of salt lakes. The main inspiration for his work comes from Aboriginal dot paintings he encountered in the Australian desert as a boy, which use both topographical and symbolic communication of the landscape to tell a story.

He has held four successful solo exhibitions throughout his home state of Victoria and his work can be found in private collections around the world.
