Art Rental & Sales at the Vancouver Art Gallery presents new work by
Featured Artist Kevin Boyle
Kevin Boyle, Beaver Lumber, ed. 2/5, Lightbox, 30" x 20" x 3.75
What we see is not always what is.
From social media to algorithm-based newsfeeds and advertising on every conceivable surface we see, our perceptions are constantly being influenced by agendas which are not our own.
This compilation of works challenges the viewer to stay vigilant and aware of the powers that can alter how we see the world.
A group of buffalo in a snowy, white-out winter scene is actually a beautiful summer day with the sun behind the herd, over-exposed to turn everything to white except the bison.
From a distance, what appears to be the cresting, white cap of a wave before it crashes on the shore is actually the peak of a mountain.
Old abandoned buildings lit with flashlights and the high beams of my car create images that couldn’t possibly exist in real life.
By manipulating perception with these images, I hope to tickle your mind with possibility, and also help keep you sharp to the powers that be.
