Formulation of Time

Available for Viewing and Purchase

Lipont Place, 4211 No. 3 Road, Richmond, BC

Phyllis Schwartz and Edward Peck use plant-based materials to create works of art that speak to issues of permanence and impermanence that challenge the viewer to contemplate time, form, and the ephemeral.

Phyllis Schwartz uses hybrid camera-less process to create photograms that leaves traces and shadows on photosensitive surfaces. Plant enzymes and atmospheric conditions interact with creating alchemical results on the surface of the paper and sheet film, leaving X-ray like marks of shapes and interiors. These Lumen Prints are primal hovering on the cusp of poetry.

Edward Peck’s series, Arrangements, addresses the transitional processes found in nature and our esthetic manipulation of natural objects through the discarded floral arrangement. The moment we perceive beauty fades, the beauty is not lost what follows has its own striking beauty and relationship to the natural cycles around us. His hybrid photograph processed images work with the symbolism of flower arrangements exploring the beauty that extends beyond their symbolic use.

Curatorial Projects

As curators, Edward Peck and Phyllis Schwartz engage local and international artists in conversations to develop exhibitions. They offer participating artists the opportunity to collaborate and develop a body of work for exhibition. This collective approach invites diverse artists to work together: creating opportunities for collaboration and conversations about artist practices, the creative process and community engagement. Out of this process, a thematic approach to each exhibition develops.
