    Ryan Sullivan Canvases



    Painter Ryan Sullivan’s abstract canvases exhibited at Manhattan’s Maccarone gallery embrace environmental affects and the chemical reactions of paints layered on top of each other.  By tilting the canvases and waiting for time and gravity to act on the canvases Sullivan creates highly textured, fascinating surfaces.

    Michael Hansmeyer Columns






    Michael Hansmeyer is an architect who uses algorithmic architecture techniques, generative art mentalities, and CAD software to generate complex structures. He designs processes to generate objects. These columns of milled 1mm ABS plastic layers were exhibited at the 2011 Gwangju Design Biennale. They are eerie in their other-worldliness and are endlessly fascinating.

    BC 5×3



    BC 5×3 at the Seymour Art Gallery is my second solo photography show.  It is a collection of photographs taken while traveling through British Columbia: Tofino, Merritt, Bella Coola, Vancouver, and Mount Seymour in North Vancouver. There are five groups of three images, and each triplet is distinct due to place, time of day, and the colour palette of the area. These groupings explore emotive environments, intense colour fields, textures, and multiple possible readings afforded by abstraction.

    “Atmospheres” Photography Exhibition








    These are several images from my first solo photography exhibition, Atmospheres, at the Artemis Gallery in North Vancouver.

    Artist’s Statement:

    Atmospheres is an exploration of light, object and shadow in a frozen moment of time – elements that define photography itself. The images of this exhibition are the product of ice slabs I created, some embedded with objects that become mysterious forms in blocks of ice. I used a variety of light sources to illuminate these transient pieces in order to achieve the serene, abstract environments that are captured by the photographs.


    My process of producing a final image includes the investigation of macro and micro views within my base photos to experiment with the effects of scale. Used as a tool for manipulating colour and contrast, the computer also facilitates my exploration of the mood within the image, and allows me to delve deep into aspects of abstraction and emotive space – the universe in my icebox.
