Truth and Beauty present Spellbound by photographer Ken Lorenz

Tuesday, February 19th, 2019

Truth and Beauty Gallery is pleased to present Spellbound. The show opens on February 23rd and runs to March 9th. The artist Ken Lorenz will be in attendance for the opening from 1 – 4pm.

 

EXHIBITION STATEMENT
“Inspiration for my image-making comes primarily from Colombian writer Gabriel Garcia Marquez,
a Latin American author who developed the novel literary genre, Magic Realism, as a basis for storytelling.
‘Magic Realism’ is defined as “making use of magic elements in order to create an alternative  to accepted reality.
Time exists in a kind of timeless fluidity.”
While each series is different, this is the overarching concept weaving them together.
The images in this exhibition have no distinct psychological relationship;  yet the distortion –
obscurity and ambiguity evident in each photograph —  establishes the artistic intention. ”

Images from three portfolios are featured in this exhibition:
In The Shadow of Puppets
Words in Search of a Photograph

Truth and Beauty Gallery presents Jurgen Vogt’s Route 66

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2018

Truth and Beauty Gallery is pleased to share Route 66 an online exhibition –

“Having watched the TV Series Route 66 in the early 60’s I drove the highway, for the first time in late 1967, from California to Texas. Since then I’ve driven different stretches of the road many times. What has always intrigued me were the old, often abandoned buildings, motels, garages, and diners. The ghosts of Route 66.

In 1989 and 1992 I went on my first trips to photograph a portion of the old Route 66, from Victorville, California to Albuquerque, New Mexico, not because it was a famous transportation route at one time but because of what was left behind, the remains of Route 66. I continue my photography of Route 66 every time I drive along Interstate 40. While still photographing with my 4 x 5, I also now use a 35mm digital camera.
All photography for this project was done using a 4 x 5 camera, and black & white film. I made contact sheets from the negatives at the time, but did not print anything until recently.” Jurgen Vogt

Truth and Beauty present book launch of Terry Munro’s EMPIRE OF ILLUSION

Tuesday, April 17th, 2018

On April 18th, 2018, from 4:00 – 8:00 Truth and Beauty Gallery with Vancouver Curator Bill Jeffries, will host  a special event book launch EMPIRE OF ILLUSION by Terry Munro and Text by Bill Jeffries.

 

Over the past decade Canadian artist Terry Munro has concentrated his creative efforts in documenting one street: Las Vegas Boulevard in Nevada, USA. Visually, Las Vegas offers an unprecedented environment that purposely and at great expense seeks to interrogate the relationship between reality, symbols and society in often bizarre, ethnocentric, exaggerated, extraordinary and outrageous ways. It is a place that demands the craving of fantasy, ecstasy and illusion.

The photographs presented here in duotone by Munro distil the hyperbole and extravagance of the Las Vegas strip to reveal simple truths about spectacle as the final manifestation of capitalism. Exploring the ideas and influences of Munro, Bill Jeffries has contributed a text that explores these themes in more detail, and how the photographer’s work sits within the canon of North American photography.    – Black Dog Publishing
