Altered Landscapes, a solo exhibition by Canadian photographer Avi Leigh Bader opens at Shipton Street Gallery on Thursday November 3rd.
Bader's work explores the relationship between the mind and urban spaces. Her series of 10 images responds to a chaotic personal relationship, which took her on a journey exploring the west coast of North America. Haunting and painful memories distorted the original images, forcing Bader to look within herself to create new meaning and memories.
With influences as diverse as Hermann Rorschach, Da Vinci and Botticelli, tensions are crafted from both personal interpretation and digital manipulation. Bader's Altered Landscapes investigate the nuances of pixels through the use of symmetry and reproduction, which emphasize the mechanical nature of digital media. Bader explores abstract imagery and layers scenery as motifs to describe the idea of infinite possibilities and the promise of new beginnings.
