Psychological Space Transcends Geometrical Space:

The idea of expanding the temporal and spatial boundaries of the photographic medium; allow the artist to use the model to convey the expressive exploration in the areas of alignment, proportion and spatial definition. Using models to explore relationships between open and contained space, permits the artist to use the language of architecture and the architectural model. Exploring the idea of site geometries, histories and traces, lets our mind wander through as well as wonder about the significance of these events.

Artist working with the retrieval of memory, through found or inverted narratives, are creating events, which the work searches for its own context and boundaries. It is time itself revealed, and experience as the central subject.

These are surrogate boxes to store my memories; both lived and unrealized.

Gene Wheeler


I have a diverse range of professional experience spanning over 30-years, including commercial and fine art photography. As a photographer my focus has been on the studio environment, including set design and fabrication, and advanced studio lighting techniques.

I have extensive knowledge in the areas of studio lighting techniques, wet darkroom, digital capture and workflow techniques, large format camera techniques as well as the history of photography.

The evolution of my personal work, sculptural in nature but photographically driven, has influenced not only my art, but often is evident in my commercial assignments as well as the direction of my course development as an educator.
