Intervals: Photography in Flux - Capture Festive Vancouver

Capture  Photography Festival, April 2016

Intervals: Photography in Flux, Capture Photography Exhibition 2016, March 31st - April 9th, 2016 South Main Gallery SoMa, 279 East 6th Avenue Vancouver, BC Canada This exhibition is part of the international Capture Photography Exhibition and is about the transitory nature of photography. Every image, depending on time, location, viewer, and context, is constantly in transition. Photographers create meaning that fluctuates in the intervals between their images—whether it be the intervals between the shutter opening and closing, the intervals between the images on the wall, the interval between the image and the material on which it is presented, or the interval between the meaning that arises and changes in the viewer as they move between images. Intervals presents the work of seven contemporary photographers based in Vancouver, Victoria, Los Angeles, Honolulu, and Iran who explore the rhythms and tension of their geographical, social, and psychological landscapes.

Telling Stories: On-Tak Gallery

November 7th - December 19th

On-Tak Gallery

555 Columbia, Vancouver, BC

The work of nine Vancouver artists telling stories in a variety of media pushing the boundaries of their artistic medium. 

Urban and environmental issues are the predominant themes running through the stories in this exhibition. Alison Keenan uses scale to tell visual stories about the territorial clash between avian and human creatures. Edward Peck’s photographs of Berlin graffiti's on-going stories in the urban streetscape. Phyllis Schwartz's  Salton Sea series pictures of surreal environmental devastation.

Daphne Harwood uses the quilting medium to document urban transformation where once stood Imagination Market on the north shore of False Creek. Sophi Liang installs a ladder which holds traditional books to deconstruct traditional Chinese cultural values transplanted in a new cultural landscape. Colette Lisoway’s multi-screen prints build up a new image of a multicultural society in a rapidly changing community.

June Yun’s paintings might look like misty Chinese countryside landscapes, but they are in fact stories of pollution that causes a nuclear winter. The tension in Jim Friesen’s stormy skies tell stories about the cycle of tension and release, a metaphor for many of the issues presented in the stories in this exhibition.

Shelter Island Series: Truth and Beauty Gallery

May 1-16, 2014

698 West 16th Avenue

Vancouver, BC

This is a solo show of Edward Peck's Shelter Island Series, a show of abstract work.

While each print in the Shelter Island Series stands on its own as a landscape or narrative, its power is in the collection of images drawn from material sources that are in various states of organic decomposition. Peck finds forms and surfaces that are alive in their process of transformation, and brings to the viewer’s attention a new appreciation for the material aging process. The intentional ambiguity of his images allows the viewer to form their own personal narrative.
