Lisa Klapstock: Depiction

Picture, Study 1 (2007, digital C-print, lustre laminate on aluminum). From Lisa Klapstock: Depiction at the Diane Farris Gallery in Vancouver, Canada. "...For over ten years, Toronto artist Lisa Klapstock has used photography to investigate the complexity of visual perception. Through the use of variances in depth of field, Klapstock explores the artifice of pictorial construction and the camera’s role in the enhancement or alteration of how we view and experience our surroundings. The resulting images are stunning panoramas that mimic the ways in which our minds perceive objects in space and time –experiences that photography has been attempting to replicate, mediate or control since its invention."
