Lens Based Photography
24 x 24 x 2.5
Judy D Shane is an emerging bachelor of fine arts graduate (Emily Carr University – 2012) based in Vancouver. Shane’s current art practice challenges the space between painting and photography using contemporary digital technologies to create multi-layered photographic composites of individually sculpted strokes of paint. These large scale compositions emphasize three-dimensional realism and materiality and address concepts of mathematical ordering, patterning and repetition. Prior to completing her degree, Shane worked as a visual effects compositor in the film and television industry. Her work has appeared in commercials, episodic television series, video game cinematics, music videos, documentaries and film. She has received nominations for an Emmy award (Best visual effects) (2001), a Gemini award (Best visual effects) (2001) and two Leo awards (Best visual effects in a dramatic series) (2001). She is represented by Kostuik Gallery in Vancouver and Agora Gallery in New York.
