The title of the show refers to the process of generating images from a dimensional computer model known as rendering. ‘Re-render’ because this is Michael’s second exhibition at Gecko Studio Gallery, and also because each image is rendered many times over during its development (parts of them perhaps a hundred times over to get it right) before they are finally produced at high quality settings for printing. The process spans a number of disciplines including 3d modeling, photography and digital image manipulation. Some of the works on display will be accompanied by a detailed step-by-step explanation of how they were produced.

Last year’s exhibition consisted largely of pen & ink travel sketches from overseas travels, as well as computer renderings that generated a lot of interest and were especially popular. This show is primarily made up of computer renderings. Many of them use local scenes for their inspiration. While some of the places will be easily recognisable to people familiar with Fish Creek, others are imaginary compositions based on ideas and photographic textures from the local area and beyond.

Michael studied architecture at Melbourne University and has worked as an architect in Melbourne, Perth and Singapore. He has been a full-time architectural 3D illustrator since 2001 when he set up 3fold Design, which specialises in computer renderings for architectural projects (www.3fold.com.au).

This is his second solo exhibition.
