Cricket Saleh works in Photography. In a professional context she is highly sought after for her completely unique approach to image making.
She has a seemingly effortless ability to capture the feeling and atmosphere of a concept. In her arts practice Cricket explores the genre of Still Life, simultaneously referencing art historical understandings of the medium and subverting it. She creates the illusion of a painted surface through considered lighting.
Her works are crisp; simple compositions, tangible texture and moody tones. Cricket’s photographs depict an ongoing interest in the ephemeral nature of life. Beauty, indulgence, consumption and decay are underlying themes in her artwork.
We are thrilled that Cricket’s work This Too Shall Pass was recently acquired into the permanent collection of the Geelong Gallery.
