Surfactant, Inkjet Print on Plinth, 63’’x42’’x 18’’ (2017)  Surfactant explores the aesthetic beauty of the Ottawa River and its seasonal change through the photographic lens. This work uses photo collage as a way to achieve a perspective foreign to reality while simulating the realistic detail of documentary photography. The work seeks to engage in the relationship between photography and science, while simultaneously opening a dialogue with painting. The image references the flattened surface and gestural form of abstract expressionism; but it exchanges the ethos of the gestural human hand for the mechanical eye of the camera.
