Newzones is pleased to present Perception as part of Exposure 2012: Calgary / Banff / Canmore Festival of Photography.
Perception is an exciting presentation of Newzones' process-driven and photo-based artists, curated to showcase the methods that are employed in their creative process.
With the photograph at the core, Perception will explore artwork that is manipulated in many fashions: by way of hand with a selection of media, where photography becomes mixed with wax, paint or Plexiglas. Other artists use pinhole cameras or Polaroid film to achieve a specific effect, and some utilize digital means to create and alter the artwork, resulting in a different effect altogether. With all of these varying methods, it's up to the viewer to determine how the photos are created.
The exhibition will feature Calgary-based photographers Dianne Bos and James Holroyd, as well as Jesse Boles, Franco DeFrancesca, John Folsom, Virginia Mak and Sarah Nind.
