“By Facet & Scale” by David Trautrimas
Opening Reception: Thursday, February 23, 6-8 PM
February 23, 2012 â€“ March 24, 2012
Artist Talk: Saturday February 25, 2PM
“By Facet & Scale” highlights the artist’s photo-based techniques of digitally fabricating natural and manmade environments, as revealed, for example, in his transformation of modern appliances into re-imagined architectural structures and in his crafting of atmospheres reminiscent of aerial and satellite mappings. David Trautrimas fuses his technological and artistic skills to push the boundaries of photographic capabilities, ultimately providing an alternate understanding of architecture & landscape. Presented in collaboration with LE Gallery.
David Trautrimas, an honours OCAD graduate, is the recipient of numerous grants, awards and commissions.
