Painting On Photography



This week we had a visit from the curator of The Canadian Museum of Contemporary Photography who gave a wonderful presentation of archival photographs by Canadian photographers.

I was so excited to see how some Canadian photography and painting was presented by some artists in a synthesis together as complete works of art. I find this fusion of both media very compelling, because it puts in to question the divisiveness between the two mediums. I am excited to find out more and would love to explore this further in my own art practice in my upcoming 4Th year studio.
The work of painting on photography I have posted is from the site by an artist Karl Zipser.
Unfortunately during the presentation I didn't write down the names of the Canadian artists who are doing this kind of work. I didn't bring my pen or paper. That's always an important habit to have during presentations!
