Jason Gowans
In his project 5 Landscape Modes, Vancouver-based photographic artist Jason Gowans studies the structural implications of photographed landscapes. Exploring simultaneously the second and third dimensions, Gowans carefully deconstructs a images and rearranges them to create new landscapes with a restored depth. The result is a series of photographs that offer thoughtful alternatives to the conventional landscape practice. Gowans expands on his process:
"This show was created from physical objects. I built maquettes using found negatives, my own photographs, and images from the Internet. I photographed them to create several angles, exposures, shadows
I took many cues from Robert Smithson’s Non-Sites, Michael Snow’s La Région Centrale, and western movie sets.”
