Curator Statement:

This show features works by Richard Holt, Ed Preston, Rodrigo Solano–Quesnel and Brad Walker.

These photographers traverse Ontario, the United States and Mexico looking for places and things that were once grand but are now slightly worn, largely abandoned and changed with time and weather.

Signs are everywhere and their worn nature speaks volumes about how the ever-present big brother is directing us even from the past. There is cause for eye crossing in the case of Rod’s pieces (which primarily consist of architecture and old things in new spaces), as he wants your eyes to play tricks on you while looking at photo pairs to create illusory 3D effects.
