HYPNOGOGIC RHYTHMS - OPENS NEXT THURSDAY
VANCOUVER, September 3, 2013 – Winsor Gallery is pleased to announce its participation in Capture Photography Festival by way of a group exhibition in its West Gallery. The exhibition is entitled Hypnagogic Rhythms, and will run from September 19th through November 2nd, 2013. An opening reception will be held on September 19th, and many of the exhibiting artists will be in attendance.
An exploration of the space between dreaming and being awake, Hypnagogic Rhythms will feature photography and video work by eight artists: Brian Howell, Bill Anderson, Trig Singer, Paul Wong, Evann Siebens, Dana Claxton, Colin Smith and Cindy Sherman.
According to gallery owner Jennifer Winsor: “Hypnagogic Rhythms explores grids, movement, architecture and the body. Visitors will be entranced with Paul Wong and Evann Siebens’ video works. Then they encounter Brian Howell’s monumental 99 Stars installation juxtaposed by Dana Claxton and Trig Singer’s contemplative black and white photography. Viewing pleasure is further heightened as they discover Colin Smith’s Camera Obscura series, and Bill Anderson’s landscapes that challenge depth, perception and surface. The dynamic work in this exhibition is proof of Vancouver’s critical photography scene. Capture Photography Festival seems to be well on its way towards nationally recognition in its inaugural year. We look forward to visiting several of this year’s exhibitions this autumn.”
