Artists Andrzej Maciejewski & Juliana Rempel prompt us to look again at the objects around us and contemplate their meaning in Posed and Poised.
Striking still-life colour photographs by Ontario photographer, Andrzej Maciejewski resemble the paintings of the Old Masters. In a contemporary twist the fruits and vegetables, carefully lit and posed in these atmospheric images are straight from the local supermarket. They still bear their label stickers with PLU numbers, shrink wrap and tags; each fruit perfectly formed, sized and at its peak ripeness, urging consumption.
Alberta ceramicist and sculptor, Juliana Rempel is influenced greatly by the fine art tradition of Still Life, which is the foundation of her practice. The large-scale ceramic sculptures she creates demonstrate the beauty of simplicity. Inspired by household objects, she examines the relationship between seemingly mundane entities and the spaces they inhabit.
