Richard Bornemann

“I create images of architecture that are extraordinary in their minimalism and simplicity. They are composed of everyday objects: doors, stairs,  windows, etc”.

“Each composition contains a solitary scale giving element. These allow the viewer to establish an understanding and relationship to the proportions of the space depicted. These human use items also draw the viewer in to the image, as a participant.
In keeping with the stark simplicity of the compositions, all ornament and decoration have been eliminated.
The images are pregnant with potential: one wonders what lies beyond the bounds of the space, what action is about to unfold.
The pictures are brilliantly hued and filled with a radiant light.
Delicate shadings and gradations of color play across surfaces to amplify the simplicity of their surroundings.
The resulting spaces depicted are spare but profound, compact yet expansive”.

Bryan Belanger

Bryan Belanger is a professional multi disciplinary artist who has been active in the Toronto Arts community since 2002.  He is a painter, illustrator, sculptor, filmmaker, and musician. Belanger is the Art Director for Pilot Pocket Book, a Canada Council and Ontario Arts Council funded art and literary magazine, and since 2004 the apprentice to the renowned assemblage sculptor, Roger Wood of Klockwerks.

“There is something for the viewer to experience on close examination and from a distance, which speaks to them in how nature is imagined. Be it locational, elemental or emotion it would appear everyone has a different picture of nature.”

Below is a little sneak peak of what Bryan will have on display at Contact 2013 Norman Felix Field of Vision
