SUMMER FOCUS EXHIBITION: ANTHONY REDPATH
350 Dundas St. W, Toronto
June 3 - 17, 2017
Back by popular demand, Redpath's large scale photographs, including the lightbox image of 'Separation and Conversion' will be installed here at Bau-Xi Photo, Toronto. The treatment of Redpath's subjects entices the viewer to go beyond the documentary style and examine closely the surface sensuality and rich palette of a decaying landscape. Redpath positions his lens at close range to distill his subjects into a series of abstracted planes of shape and texture. Further enhanced by the complex ribbing, vaulting and rustication of the sugar refinery, pulp mills, and oil refinery that comprise the series, Redpath's attention to detail reveals the effects of time on these monolithic architectural subjects. Works in RE-FINED are technical, beautiful images which respond to shifting understandings about industry as an important feature of the Canadian landscape.
Bau-Xi Photo, Toronto is open daily from 10am-5:30pm, directly across from the Art Gallery of Ontario.
