Artist Statement

The Sleeping Green, No Man’s Land 100 Years Later.

While trying to find a good vantage point from which to photograph, I accidentally slid down the edge of a crater. Upon catching my breath, I stared into the sky framed by trees gently swaying around the edge of the field crater and felt engulfed by paralyzing sadness. The enormity of the deaths and injuries that occurred in this exact location overwhelmed me.  Had someone fallen in this exact spot? What did they see in their last moments?  Dianne Bos

Beginning in 2014 with the centenary of the start of WW1, Dianne Bos began taking photographs in ‘no‐man’s land’ between the trenches on the former Western Front. From 2015-2016, she travelled through the battle sites in France and Belgium where Canadian soldiers fought. She used a variety of vintage and pinhole cameras to photograph the land a century after the Great War.

These are all unique images created using a process different from the one art audiences have come to know over Dianne’s last 18 years with the Kostuik Gallery. While making the prints in the darkroom, Bos layered these photographs with found objects related to the events, such as poppies, bullets, or stones. The result is a series of complex visual images, each one unique and irreproducible (even when using the same negative). By scattering objects over the paper during printing, as well as dodging and burning, the artist produces layers of imagery, which conveys the emotional depth of these historic battle sites. Photographs from this series were first exhibited in a 2015 traveling exhibition curated by Director/Curator Josephine Mills for the University of Lethbridge Art Gallery, Alberta Canada and then exhibited at the Canadian Cultural Centre in Paris, France in 2017.

 

Artist Biography

Over the past 25 years Dianne Bos has continually explored motifs such as galaxies and constellations, European interiors with light portals (such as windows or doors) and figures presented as light apparitions. Pinhole projections and the camera obscura - Italian for dark room - changed Western thinking of the Earth’s relationship to the sun, and in turn, assisted in transforming the face of art during the Renaissance period. These tools and devices formulate and extend her fascination with journeying, time, and light-forms. Bos is well known for her museum exhibitions that feature handmade cameras, walk-in light box installations, and sound pieces.

Based in Calgary, Alberta, Dianne Bos has been called Canada’s “queen” of pinhole photography. Multi-talented, her art practice and interests extend into a variety of creative fields, from being a lead singer and keyboardist for several musical bands. Her photography has been used on several vinyl, cassette, CD and video releases in Canada, USA and Europe, and she has written and photographed for contemporary garden and design magazines. Bos has consistently exhibited photography and installation works in solo and group shows in public and private galleries and museums across Canada and internationally for over 30 years. Along with Canadian Museum and corporate collections, elected collections of Dianne Bos works include Official Residence, Canadian Ambassador, Paris, France, the Canadian Embassy, Brussels, Belgium, and Department of Global Affairs, for NATO Offices, Brussels, Belgium.

Artist Biography

Vancouver, Canada, based David Burdeny has exhibited with the Jennifer Kostuik Gallery since 2001, showcasing his images from the world over, including Antarctica, Iceland, Brazil, China, Burma, Cambodia, France, Italy, Canada and the USA. Known for his finely composed photographs, David Burdeny has spent the past 20 years exploring a variegated photographic Landscape ranging from minimal seascapes, ornate European interiors to abstract aerial images. Widely collected in Canada, the USA, Asia and Europe, the sheer beauty of David’s images has firmly placed him within the realm of Canada’s most sought after photo-based artists. David’s willingness to take risks, eschew dogma and continuously pursue his innate curiosity for new subjects and themes has become a signature element in his work. Be it mounting a camera beneath a self -built drone, shooting from the deck of an Antarctic bound icebreaker or waiting for an ocean tide to advance, David faithfully imbeds his own formal signature into each and every image further expressing a lifelong passion for the built environment and the camera’s interpretation of it. Distinctly David Burdeny, the photographs are rigorous yet graceful, inviting the viewer to form their own narrative as if they too were passing through space or gazing into the horizon for the very first time.

David Burdeny’s Masters in Architecture and Interior Design background combined with his upbringing in the vast Canadian prairies provides the template for his keen technical ability, enduring patience and minimalist aesthetic. Recently moving from using large format film to now the finest available digital cameras and precision optics, his images are rendered large and detailed. A Bright Future- Photographs of Russian Subways, Theaters and Palaces 2015 received an explosion of media interest, especially in the UK and Russia. Burdeny was in New York City to receive his First Place Award from IPA for Avata Metro Station, St. Petersburg, Russia in the Category of Historic Architecture, and was interviewed for the most recent articles for The Guardian UK and Wired publications amongst several others. In 2012, the Ancora Series of 2010 was exhibited at the Centre for Photographic Art, Carmel CA, Curated by Richard Gadd. Burdeny has won several gold awards in international art photography competitions, most significantly receiving International Photographer of the Year in the Nature category for Canada, revealed at the Lucie Awards Ceremony in New York City, October 2008. His first book Shorelines sold out in both the limited collector edition and trade publication. He has 10 Limited Edition Photographic Series currently offered and is represented by other art dealers in Canada, the USA and Europe. His second hard cover book is A Bright Future, 2015 with text by esteemed writer and translator, Rosamund Bartlett.
