Allison Moore (Montreal, QC.)
March 13th – April 25th, 2015
Opening Reception, Friday March 13th 8PM
Artist Workshop with Allison Moore: Saturday, March 14 at 1 p.m.
Allison Moore’s Video Terrariums are a collection of panoramic video landscapes that use multiple screens to integrate various animation and compositing techniques. Moore’s use of the broad composition also references the scenic dioramas that one might find in a natural history museum, often deployed to illustrate a variety of habitats. The artist’s playful exploration of such aggregated constructions has allowed her to experiment with and alter perspective, and to uproot images with surreal juxtapositions.
Allison Moore comments, “I like to cut things from their regular habitat and rearrange them in new spaces, either to enhance the meaning they represent, or to create a new representation. In the spirit of the Dada and Surrealist art movement, my work is influenced by a culture of collage. My intended process is influenced by several sources, most evidently by the perverse surrealism of Flemish painters Pieter Bruegel and Hieronymus Bosch.”
Gallery Hours: Tuesday – Friday, Noon – 6 pm; Saturdays Noon – 4pm
