Allegory is an exhibition that will be held at the Deer Lake Art Gallery featuring the work of Photographers Julie Prescott and Kenneth Gillespie. Allegory is hosted and organized by the Burnaby Arts Council. The Exhibition will open on April 13th and will run until May 6th, 2017.
Allegory is part of the 2017 Capture Photography Festival. The 4th Annual event which encompasses a wide range of programming hilighting the community of artists in the Lower Mainland and Canada.
The two artists participating in Allegory have a commonality in that both establish a link between the landscape’s reality and that imagined by its conceiver; the hidden meaning, or allegory. Both challenge the subject from completely different perspectives.
Prescott is an award-winning photographer with a particular reverence to water. Water represents to her deep, reflective and shape shifting matter. Photography allows the viewer to connect with life’s minutiae in the texture, tone, shadow and light of water. Nothing re-arranged, framed or photo shopped, but caught in the act of being all that is water.
Gillespie has a lifetime of experience behind the lens of a camera. He has become increasingly fascinated by the options of digital photography. His works are an investigation into representations of (seemingly) concrete images. By exploring the concept of landscape Gillespie, with the help of physics and technology, enables the viewer to see his interpretation of the world. The hidden meaning of his work is the landscape as most view it and how it is imagined by Gillespie.
