FOUND IMAGE/CONSTRUCTED IMAGE: An Exhibition of Photographs
This photography exhibit highlights the difference between the found image such as the series Foot Prints and the constructed image. In Swamp Lilies, the play with colour creates an imagined landscape. In Ode to Julia Margaret Cameron, the juxtaposition of objects and reflections points to multi-layered realities.
The exhibit is open from June 2-29.
The reception is on Sat June 9 from 2:30-4:30. All welcome.
North York Central Library 5120 Yonge St
Opening hours of the library are Mon- Friday 9:00-8:30; Sat. 9:00-5:00; Sun. 1:30-5:00
Linda Briskin has ever-shifting photographic enthusiasms, what she calls ‘photoglossia’. Light, lines, shadows, and the play of figure-ground; the juxtaposition of objects and reflections; the ambiguities in what we choose to see; the permeability between the remembered and the imagined; and alternative digital colourscapes which remind us that landscape is invented through our gaze. Recent solo shows: “An Hour from the City” (2007), “Counterpoint” (2009), Ode to Julia Margaret Cameron (2009) and Photoglossia (2010).
