MEDIATION and MISANTHROPY

GALERIE GAULIN            NOVEMBER 11-15, 2013

 

For my first solo exhibition in GALERIE GAULIN at the Alberta College of Art and Design, I decided to hang my prints against a backdrop of my influences- the newspaper media, and enlarged images from the internet taken from sensationalist news sites.  The "misanthropy" (general disgust towards human contact and society) shows my distaste for the events and stories being relayed through the media bias.

The overwhelming amount of information sets the prints back into the maelstrom of news media and images.
