Doug Prince’s Photo Sculptures are featured at AIPAD 2014

April 12, 2014

CEG is featuring works from Doug Prince’s renowned Photo-Sculpture series at Aipad.  The series consists of images printed on film which are sandwiched between Plexiglas, creating a photographic fantasy. As light passes through the “boxes,” objects appear sharper, creating a drama, which taps into our memories and dreams.

The layered images range in content from realistic environments to illogical spaces, presenting a surreal juxtaposition of elements and challenging the viewer’s notion of truth and reality. From its inception, photography has explored the relationship between fact and fiction.

Oscar Rejlander and H. P. Robinson, both pioneers of early photography, combined negatives and staged events to discuss prevalent social issues. Their images force viewers to grapple with the concept that the camera has the ability to create fictions.   Doug Prince continues in this tradition, blurring the lines between fact and fiction, and reminding us that photographs are taken and made.

Ysabel LeMay at AIPAD 2014

April 12, 2014

CEG is excited to be showing work by Ysabel LeMay at AIPAD 2014.

Quebec born Ysabel LeMay’s artistic journey is itself a “Journey into Simplicity”. In 1987 she began a thriving career as a graphic artist working for several prominent advertising agencies before opening her own firm in Vancouver. Seeking greater fulfillment, she made a transition into the fine arts studying painting at the Emily Carr University of Art. In 2002, she left the world of corporate advertising behind devoting full-time to her painting. Since then, she has achieved much success with over 40 exhibitions throughout the United States, Europe and Canada.

In 2010 she turned her full attention to photography. Combining her technical expertise with her deep-seated roots as a painter, LeMay continues her exploration into the power and divinity of nature through a unique process she calls “Photo-Fusion”. At first glance, you might think you are looking at a hyper-realistic painting. However, LeMay’s innovative technique is a lengthy process during which hundreds of photographs are taken and light and visual properties are attuned. She then assembles one detail at a time in a painterly fashion to form a single composition. In 2011 LeMay was selected the winner of KiptonArt Rising Star program in New York. Since then she exhibited in the US, Canada, Europe, Asia and The Netherlands.

Gustavo Lacerda at AIPAD 2014

April 11, 2014

CEG is currently showing three photographs by  Gustavo Lacerda at AIPAD in New York.  The works exhibited come from Lacerda’s series Albinos.

In 2009, Brazilian photographer Gustavo Lacerda began a series focused on albinos who live in his homeland. His first hurdle was to gain their confidence, as most of the people he approached were accustomed to the harsh scrutiny of outsiders. Once trust was established, Lacerda invited them into his studio where he used classic portrait lighting to create an atmosphere of calmness, allowing each person the comfort needed to reveal their personalities.

Gustavo Lacerda works and lives Sao Paulo. His series, Albinos, has received critical praise and was recently featured on Huffington Post and Wonderland Magazine and is included in the Musée du Quai Branly Collection (Paris, France) and the Sao Paulo Museum of Art (Sao Paulo, Brazil).  A monograph on Albinos is in production, and will be released at the end of 2013 by Editora Estudio Madalena.
