Presentification of Paradise: Jean-Rene Leblanc

"Yellow Ford", digital colour and infrared photography, 24" x 60"
Leblanc describes his work this way: "This body of work explores the conceptual use of digital infrared photography as a means to investigate new ways of looking at the world we live in.

Shot on the Big Island of Hawaii, diptychs composed of images of abandoned vehicles juxtaposed to pristine landscapes shot in digital infra-red attempt to address the paradoxes of beauty, capitalism and notions of paradise."

View Leblanc's work in his exhibition "Presentification of Paradise", on now at the Visual Arts Alberta Gallery. Showing alongside Leblanc is the mixed media work of Patricia Coulter in "Bits and Pieces". Both shows are up until December 6, 2014

Visual Arts Alberta Gallery is open from Wed-Fri, 10am-4pm and Sat, 12-4pm. The Gallery is closed for holidays and holiday weekends.
