With a fresh view to the everyday landscape, that is so often seen as mundane, the familiar, takes on an ethereal quality, evoking a sense of liveliness and movement. By exposing the relationship between photographic depiction and visual perception through juxtaposing and layering, I convey an imagery that can be a powerful channel to visually express an abstract contemplation, creating an uplifting magical realism. My layered photo based creations, are printed on archival paper, applied to a wood panel and fine art quality epoxy resin poured on for a finished piece. Chris Albert is a photo-based artist living in Toronto.
