Second Glance at Well and Good

Earlier this week I wandered into the back gallery at Well and Good. The CONTACT exhibit, Second Glance, has been showing there since May 3rd. I'd heard good things from some friends who were there on opening night, and when I finally found some time to check it out for myself I wasn't disappointed.

Although it's a group show with contributions from Talia Shipman, Luna Simic, Claudio Bianchi, Che Kothari and Sammy Rawal, the photos that really grabbed me were from local, self-taught digital photographer Tobias Wang.

Seen above and below, Tobias' photos, part of his Siamese Series, first reminded me of something I'd seen the week before at the Gladstone Art Bar. Each image is a study in the dualities of individual personality and are so well stitched together I wasn't sure what I was seeing until I checked the didactic.

There's still time to catch the exhibit at or before the closing party on Thursday, May 31st (7-10pm). The Well and Good Gallery is at 561 Queen Steet West (formerly M-One-11).
