Spotlight on Artist Fred Herzog, “Pioneer of Color Photography”

If you happen to be following the talented photographer, Fred Herzog, you know that his success in the art world has been a long time in the making.

From the photographer who came into our film lab almost two decades ago, to the acclaimed international artist he is today, we continue to have the privilege of working with this interesting and great man.

Rebecca Belmore at the Vancouver Art Gallery

 

Rebecca Belmore comprises a selection of work that spans the course of her significant career, drawing out connections between early performances and later sculptures, photographs and videos through recurring metaphors that are as provocative as they are poignant. In Belmore’s work, the classical reclining figure, for example, is bound in cloth, suspended or scarred, disrupting an otherwise passive gaze and asking viewers to reflect on their relationship to the practice of looking.

Working with the talented Rebecca Belmore for many years now, the Fidelis team jumped to the opportunity to assist her with creating several new pieces for this exhibition. Several media were needed to get her desired results.

Watch for this 32x96” backlit print. Printed to a unique specialty media that allows for the image to be viewed under both lit and unlit conditions. Four other new pieces at 30x40”, will be displayed as diptychs. Mounted to “Megabond” and laminated in high gloss. The exhibit also features three pieces printed to Arches textured watercolour.

A special thank you to Rebecca for allowing us to be apart of this exciting exhibition.
