Exhibition dates: February 2 - 28
TrépanierBaer is pleased to participate in the Exposure Photography Festival. The gallery will present three bodies of work by Vikky Alexander, Stéphane La Rue, and Danny Singer, respectively:
Vikky Alexander's black and white Island Series presents lush views from inside Palm House - deemed one of the most important surviving Victorian iron and glass structures in the world - at Kew Royal Botanical Gardens outside of London. Intended to house and exhibit plants of economic importance gathered from remote points of the British Empire, these abundant plants are almost as large as the edifice that contains them and have reclaimed the architecture that surrounds them.
Stéphane La Rue’s most recent work is a suite of ten stunningly beautiful colour photographs titled Sols inapparents. The genesis of this work came about during the artist’s six-month residency in Rome in 2018 where he became fascinated with the pavement stones of Roman churches. Using a camera rather than his sketchbook to document what he saw and experienced, Sols inapparents reveals itself to be an important locus of exploration. It renews La Rue’s pictorial language through photography by radically investigating illusionist space. La Rue’s photographic project continues to refer to painting, but to painting which, by rediscovering the world, takes it in hand and reinvents it.
Danny Singer continues his epic photographic project with the presentation of six new large-scale works from his Main Street and Big Sky Series. The specific resonance of Singer's photographs lies in the way he situates the subject matter as a site marked by a continual tension between place and space, between map and itinerary…. Singer's work engages us with a sense of place that continues to reinforce historical moments, and a mythological sensibility in our perception of land and life on the Great Plains.
