A two-person exhibition of photography by Laura Dutton and Arnold Koroshegyi is described as an effort to “destabilize traditional readings and open up new avenues for making and looking at photographs.”

Laura Dutton holds an mfa from the University of Victoria where she now teaches in the Visual Arts department. Her recent work involves images of windows that she describes as “once defined by…transparency – both visual and conceptual – is now opaque. The viewer is confronted not by the emptiness of the frame, but by the incredible density of colour and form contained therein.” An earlier series, titled Sunspots & Horizons, is a showcase for her experimental approach to photography – highly evocative light drawings created in a darkroom with light sensitive photo paper, chemicals and a flashlight.

Arnold Koroshegyi holds an mfa from the University of Western Ontario and teaches at the University of Toronto and Sheridan College. The series, titled Artifice, which he intends to present in this show “encompasses images of simulated flower arrangements, artificial foliage and fake sunsets created by means of a [homemade] digital scanner-camera…. The images are formal contradictions in photography” and incorporate both high colour realism as well as the mechanical evidence of digital image-making.
