An Exhibition By YORODEO
April 22 – June 24, 2016
Opening Reception: Friday, April 22 | 6:00pm – 8:00pm
New Findings is an exhibition of anaglyphic 3D artworks created by the Halifax based artists Paul Hammond and Seth Smith who work under the name of Yorodeo. The Anaglyphic 3D process utilizes red/blue glasses and has been used in comic books and movies, since the 1950s.
New Findings was originally started in 2009 and has developed into an ongoing series of anaglyphic 3D artworks. The exhibition presents viewers with an ever-expanding, fantastical universe that draws inspiration from science fiction, fantasy, children’s literature and dreams. The work fuses collaborative drawing, photography and digital collage to create glimpses of fictional lands and the characters that occupy them. The images consider how homes are made in even the most uninviting and often bizarre environments and how nature can reclaim previously inhabited spaces. It also presents viewers with fictional monuments, landmarks, and phenomena that might exist in these worlds. The exhibition includes new sculptural dioramas that incorporate 3D prints and video.
Have you started thinking about volunteer opportunities for the new year? The CBU Art Gallery offers a great opportunity for students to get involved with the arts here in Cape Breton! Creating a welcoming atmosphere for visitors and helping with exhibitions and events are all things you could be doing to help out our local art gallery.
