On view until April 9, 2018
Whether we are searching for the unknown in the furthest corners of the globe or attempting to understand the terrain upon which we have built our homes, the land has been a canvas for humans for millennia. In the exhibition, LANDSCAPES, interpreted, Jim Lamont and Richard Robesco use their cameras to interpret the land differently.
An excerpt of Jim Lamont's statement for HURRICANE:
Destructive hurricanes and other extreme weather events are becoming more frequent. Scientists and statesmen are telling us that we face “hallucinatory climatic convulsions” in the near future if we do not find some way to halt global climate change caused by our burning of fossil fuels (Stephen Lewis, 2016). This exhibition is prompted by my experience of an actual hurricane on a small island off the west coast of Canada.
An excerpt from Richard Robesco's statement for ISLANDIA:
These pictures, selected from the ISLANDIA series, were taken in Southern Iceland in late 2016. On location, my spirit was immediately transported to places depicted in Nordic mythology and poetry. As is the case for most of my artwork, these images are emotionally charged and invite the viewer to reflect upon the sublime and strangely beautiful landscape.
