My Bio
RIP 1st January 2013

Internationally recognised, multi-award winning fine art and commercial photographer Furious Ennui continually examined and interacted with the environments within which, in Gestalt terms, he was a participant/observer.

His work can be found in collections on 4 continents, and he held two solo exhibitions and participated in many group exhibitions in Melbourne, Australia. He was a winner of an award in the 2010 Kodak Salon held in Melbourne, and achieved Special Recognition in Florida's Light, Space, Time Gallery's July 2011 Open Competition as well as being a finalist in numerous other juried competitions.

Though operating across many genres of the photographic art, Furious Ennui was probably best noted for his minimalism and distinctive compositions, and his many forays into experimental photographic techniques.

As an artist, Furious Ennui created the image that becomes the catalyst and the conduit for a dialogue between viewer & image, and viewer & artist. His images where designed to make one think outside the box, and make the ordinary extraordinary. Enjoy!

Thanks for the last time

Thanks for the last time

As a close friend, I regret to inform this community that Furious Ennui is no long with us. He passed away quietly in his sleep after a very long fight with cancer on New Years morning. He is survived by his now 12 year old son and his wife. He loved working with the people here and I know that his attention, comments and wit will be missed by many people. If you have a private note for him or his family, I will be monitoring this account for the time being until we sort bits out. or you can contact me Yours in creativity and friendship Sadandal http://sadandal.deviantart.com Rest in Peace my friend.

the science of exclusion

being as it is some of my musings on one of the aspects of my approach to my fine art photography, and perhaps being capable of edifying or illuminating the reader, with even a chance of a discourse ensuing. http://furiousennui.com/2011/11/08/1896/

apollo, dionysus, nietzsche, bordieu and bill he

Natalie King's interview with Bill Henson for the Monash Gallery of Art Foundation gave a full house magnificent insight into Bill's very early career, but, for me, opened up new realms that were not explored that may shed some light on Bill's work, and the position of photography as a fine art, ranking with music, sculpture, literature and painting. My hypotheses is that Bill Henson's work, and the assertion by Pierre Bordieu that photography is middle-brow entertainment, can be best described by the innate tension of Nietzschhe's Apollonian vs Dionysian conflict. For the rest of my article, which is very much a work  in progress, pop over
