Switch Contemporary in Toronto is hosting “Farmhouses & Fortresses” new work from Alex McLeod.
Alex McLeod, Naturalized Observatory, 2009.
The prints on display were fashioned with three dimensional rendering software generally reserved for the film and gaming industries. McLeod has harnessed these powerful tools to create imagery that forwards an individual vision. This aspect of the work is of particular interest as the final product has not been diluted by the test audience or subjected to the disposition of nervous executives.
Alex McLeod, Haunted, 2009.
The title of the exhibition and the content of the work recall the imagination as it exists during childhood. A pillow on the floor became an island whilst a few chairs, couch cushions and blankets were commuted into a stronghold. The proximity of the horizon enforces the conviction that these pieces endure as worlds asunder.
Alex McLeod, Stonehenge Candy Mountain, 2009.
