Truth and Beauty Digital Gallery Presents An Exclusive Online Exhibition MEMOIRE INVOLONTAIRE Cindy Konits

Sunday, October 6th, 2019

Truth and Beauty Digital Gallery present an Exclusive online exhibition and Canadian Premiere MEMOIRE INVOLONTAIRE  Part III : Post – Cinema by Cindy Konits. It runs to 28 October 2019

 

The MEMOIRE INVOLONTAIRE project is a personal exploration of representation and memory in 8mm family film created in 1940 and interpreted in the digital age.

Cindy Konits –

 Through the gaze of a man operating an 8mm film camera long before my birth, I view both familiar and unknown adults interacting with each other and children in ways concerning but familiar. Slow motion playback of 1-hour-B&W and 1-hour-color film reveals detail such as large blue stripes in a wide ruffle sundress that bring to mind the blue couch next to a breezy open window where I sat, age 4, watching a black and white television with a man by my side – the filmmaker himself. Marcel Proust named this recognition of the past in the present moment Memoire Involontaire (In Search of Lost Time 1871-1922). (more…)

Truth and Beauty share David Niddrie’s Rough Diamonds

Sunday, August 4th, 2019

Truth and Beauty Digital Gallery is pleased to present David Niddrie’s Rough Diamonds.

 

” Rough Diamonds is a series manipulating photographic images into reflective patterns. My interest is in exploring angles and perception, taking in a micro and macro frame of mind, by looking at urban infrastructure on a grand scale taken down to street level. I look for repetition in a natural state, and one altered by humankind – the abstraction of familiarity.

This series began in 2006 with scanned prints from colour film, fine-tuned until new patterns resonated with me. A few years later, I shifted to digital captures to have larger images to work with. I work with the architecture of our city towers, streetscapes, roadways; objects such as raw meat, bicycle parts, fishing nets; and fragments of forest, fire, and water from time spent in the wilderness.
I am still seeking out these elusive moments. It’s only when I can push past the form before me – to find the hidden relationships within the scene – do these diamond patterns reveal themselves.” — David Niddrie

What Is Left Behind – Stories From Estate Sales at Truth and Beauty Gallery

Monday, May 6th, 2019

Truth and Beauty Gallery is pleased to share its online exhibition What Is Left Behind – Stories From Estate Sales
by photographer Norm Diamond

“For over a year I went to several hundred estate sales in Dallas, Texas, where I live. In many parts of the US, people use estate sales to dispose of their parents’ possessions after they die or move to assisted living facilities. In addition to photographing at the sales themselves, I also bought many inexpensive items that I studied later with better lighting and backgrounds in my home studio.  (more…)

Truth and Beauty Gallery presents 1981 The North Pole Dig

Friday, April 5th, 2019

Truth and Beauty Gallery shares  H E N R I   R O B I D E A U 1981 The North Pole Dig on view from April 6th to April 19. 

“The Pancanadienne Gianthropological Survey was originally conceived of as a photographic book project, a study of the major manifestations of human activity in the second largest country in the world, the land of my ancestors, Canada.

The 1981 North Pole Dig was the maiden voyage of The Pancanadienne Gianthropological Survey.

Leaving Vancouver August 1, the dig party arrived at its destination ten days later, Inuvik NWT, the land of the midnight noon, after having traversed the equivalent of a trip to Chihuahua, Mexico. Another two weeks later the dig arrived back in Vancouver with only five of the original eight members having survived the entire trip. Much of what was learned on that first outing would serve the Pancanadienne Gianthropological Survey well for most of the next decade of cross country digs.” 

” In 2016, at the age of 70, and after 50 years in photography I began working on the Pancanadienne Gianthropological Survey again with the intent of editing down the 2,000 or so panoramas into the book I had envisioned back in 1980.

That’s what is in this show – the first six pages of contact sheets from the first dig, along with the preliminary edit pages where I have selected, grouped and narrated the images on a worksheet. From these worksheets will come the final stories and book pages of The Pancanadienne Gianthropological Survey.”  – H. Robideau

Truth and Beauty Digital Gallery presents Rob Atkins ON THE ROAD

Saturday, February 23rd, 2019

Truth and Beauty Gallery is pleased to share Rob Atkins On The Road.

Rob Atkins is a Vancouver-based photographer specializing in architecture, interior and fine art. Since beginning his career in New York in the 1980s, his work has been used by an international array of clients.

In the fall of 2019 Glitterati Editions will release Rob’s second book, Earth River Sky – a collection of a decade of photography made in northern New Mexico.

Exhibition Statement                     

Diving along the endless highways and roads of the American southwest, I feel at times as if the car’s windshield has transformed into a large screen in a movie theater. An endless montage of signage, many from a long-gone, less homogenized, and nationally-branded era stream past, guideposts to an America that now exists mostly as a memory.

I always traveled alone, which made these trips a spiritual experience, much like my own private Santiago de Compostela pilgrimage. In that sense, the “journey” of creating these images was as much one across the physical landscape as it was an interior transit.

In the words of John Steinbeck: “We do not take a trip, a trip takes us.”
