Postcard from the Edge
The Huxley 2018
Postcards from the Edge is our story, two small town boys surviving against the odds. Being a homo in homogeny was a hard task but we learned at a young age if you can’t assimilate, its time to exaggerate. As Oscar Wilde famously said “Be yourself. Everyone else is already taken”. We took that advise and embellished it. These images span from opposite sides of a sunburnt land. Telling the tale of two lost boys looking for that rare kindred bird of feather to fly together.
Snapshots from a childhood drenched in suburban malaise. Two sparkling dandies making their way through the moist milieu of 1980’s and 90’s Australia. Surrounded by sun filled ‘paradises’ that confirmed everything we weren’t. Searching for glimmers of hope found in Bowie shaped stars in the skies and warm Purple Rain. Dreaming of our very own Xanadu

WALKING ON SUNSHINE
This tribute to the late great artist Leigh Bowery was a joint collaboration with partner Garrett Huxley. Created for the exhibition 'Tribute Act' for Melbourne Spring Fashion Week 2014. curated by Quirk and Co. The costumes, performance and imagery were created to act as a love letter to the boundary pushing extraodinary Australian artist and designer Leigh Bowery.
Will Huxley’s photographic prints 'Female Trouble' are an ode to the intense female characters, which have informed his view and love for women and their representation in film and photography. Each work represents a different emotion and character. Each women is embroiled in her own drama and passions. The work is a personal tribute and combines Will’s love of photography, costuming and performance. Bette, Jeanne, Joan and Sophia all have a secret to share and these are hinted at in these colourful works.
FEMALE TROUBLE PHOTOGRAPHIC ART
FEMALE TROUBLE VIDEO ART
Female Trouble is a video montage lovingly assembled as a celebration of the fantastic, ferocious and finest females in cinema history. Growing up with a great passion for cinema Will was always drawn to female characters and became obsessed with complex, dangerous and defiant female figures. A love of bad women, demanding, desirable and devilish was always relished. Powerful performances and iconic women are vtial to the movies. Society often portrays these women in a negative light, tormented, deranged, bitches, psycho’s but these are the very characteristics Will is drawn too and champions with this work. Each performance, each actress and personality is presented with love. As Nina Simone sings ‘Please Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood’.
This body of work has been formed over several years. Inspired by the concept of finding life in inanimate objects, outlined by the great photographer Brasaii. He refered to these ideas as living analogies. The concept of objectophillia and worshiping the form, colour and texture of an object and finding its beauty is also at the heart of this work. Pairing images together for their aesthetic beauty and creating narratives which may or may not exist. Hinted at by juxtaposition. Combining the man-made with nature, side by side complimenting each other. The work also speaks to the passing of time and capturing a moment, or feeling, fleeting and a beauty caught in an instant. Images from travel, home and play all come together to create a new life or story amonght the colours, objects and landscapes.
These fashion images capture the colour and couture of artist Garrett Huxley and his collection 'Carnival of the Animals'.
A project reflecting the imagery, rituals and pressures of female beauty.
