Vanessa Marsh’s Multi-Layered Silhouette Photographs

The work of artist Vanessa Marsh is perhaps most accurately described as photography.  Marsh creates her richly layered compositions one layer at a time.   Using drawings on clear acetate sheets and small- scale models she creates a narrative unfolding on a landscape.  After producing several such landscapes Marsh photographs the combined layers.  The resulting photographs are pictured here.  The numerous planes in each piece are similar to past and present time and the memories that accompany it.  In fact, of her work, Marsh says:

“Within the series I am exploring not only the working of memory and imagination but also our contemporary relationship to the landscape, where we might find ourselves in the future and how our feelings towards the landscape often center around ideas of dislocation, need and yearning.”

Pamela Saturday’s Exploding Installations

Interdisciplinary artist Pamela Saturday has a body of work that toys with layering both in painting and installation. Her game of hide and reveal creates a fantastic energy. From her statement she says “any truth is partial, and that the actual includes potential” which I think perfectly describes her work.

Alex Fischer

Toronto-based creator Alex Fischer seems to prefer images laden with layers. Each image screams with a smashing of cultures and a tearing of borders. Fischer questions ownership in a similar manner to Richard Prince. Each image shows patience with a strident attention to detail, as each pressing of images goes further and further into a world all its own.
