Rainbow Island by Alex McLeod

ANGELL GALLERY is pleased to present OUTWORLD, a series of new digital landscapes by ALEX MCLEOD. The exhibition will be on display in the West Gallery from April 27, 2013 to June 1, 2013.

An opening reception will be held on Saturday April 27, 2013, from 1:00 to 4:00 PM, with an ARTIST TALK at 3PM.

ALEX MCLEOD is internationally recognized for his large-scale images of fantastic worlds that appear at first glance to be photographs of actual dioramas, so palpable are the porcelain clouds, plastic fir trees and satin-covered mountains that populate these futuristic ghost towns. In fact, in McLeod’s hybrid process these forms are digitally modeled, then printed as digital C-prints. The result is a photographic vision of an imaginary place in which the patently artificial looks startlingly real.

In Outworld, McLeod uses the video game's virtual unreality as a jumping off point for the creation of new territories at the extreme ends of colour. Like postcards from another dimension, these lustrous visions of rainbow-hued crystalline islands, shimmering artificial beaches and shadow villages tantalize with their offer of impossible worlds made manifest.

ALEX MCLEOD has a BFA from OCAD University. His work has been in exhibitions across North America and Europe including solo shows at MASS Moca (Massachusetts), Galerie Trois Points (Montreal) and rojo┬«artspace (Barcelona), as well in Toronto at Angell Gallery and Narwhal Art Projects. His work has appeared in numerous publications, including Canadian Art, Blackflash and Carte Blanche 2 – Painting. Collections include Museum of Canadian Contemporary Art (MOCCA) and the BMO Financial Group.
