"Interzone 001: An Exhibition of Digital Prints by Laura De Decker"
2007-04-25 until 2007-07-19
Red Head Gallery
Interzone 001, an exhibition of digital prints by Laura De Decker, traces
her continuing aesthetic investigations into colour through computation. Laura De Decker employs both empirical and analytical approaches by moving
back and forth between software use and development. She combines the
computerís capacity to process and store information with the human ability
to capture qualitative data as sensitive, quantitative data by writing
software programs to generate visual material that can be observed,
manipulated and collected.
Although De Deckerís creative process may seem scientific it requires a less
stringent use of scientific method -- if such a method can still be
described this way-- than is normally associated with science. The variation
between perceived opposites, such as science and art, and the mind and the
body, intrigue her from many disciplinary standpoints. She refers to this
untitled mess of ideas as the Interzone.
Laura De Decker is an artist based in Waterloo, Ontario and a member of the
Red Head Gallery in Toronto. She earned an MFA in Visual Arts at the
University of Victoria and is also an alumna of the University of Toronto
and Sheridan Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning. De Decker
received an Emerging Artist Grant from the Ontario Arts Council in 2006.
