Camille Jodoin-Eng

Camille Jodoin-Eng Work from their oeuvre. “Camille Jodoin-Eng’s work approaches the interplay between physical and psychological space by engaging with spatial and sensory properties such as light, dimensions, and perspectives.

Jason Gowans

Jason Gowans Work from Five Landscape Modes. “This show was created from physical objects. I built maquettes using found negatives, my own photographs, and images from the Internet.
