This is the debut of an experimental series based on images taken from a television monitor.
Much of what we see on commercial television is mostly flash and very little substance – essentially meaningless. Nevertheless, the imagery is calculated to draw the viewer in with colour and movement, sometimes making it hard to resist.
The show consists of 2-second time exposures of the television screen, creating images that contain colour, movement and the impression of multiple exposures. This results in intriguing, sometimes beautiful images that are essentially devoid of any of the original intent. This leaves the viewer free to find new meanings that are likely very different from the original intent.
About the Artist
David’s photographs present urban images that tend toward abstraction as he isolates small portions of a scene, removing them from their context while challenging the viewer to re-examine perceptions of their environment. This exhibit represents a departure from past work and allows the viewer not only to re-examine his or her surroundings but also images that are prevalent in the media.
The artist has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions in Ottawa, Toronto, Los Angeles and Barcelona. His works hang in both private and public collections in Canada, the United States, Europe and New Zealand.
