The Audible Language of Flowers, opening May 8 at OCAD U’s Onsite Gallery, presents recent images by lens-based artist T.M. Glass featuring blooms and vessels from unique gardens across the globe.
Glass’ distinct photographic style is characterized by extensive digital embellishment of textures and colours to enhance the emotion and geometry of flowers.
Recently, the digital artist’s large-scale flower images expanded into the third dimension through advanced 3-D printing technology.
Inspired by 17th century European flower paintings, Glass contends that contemporary digital photographers are also painters who work with pixels instead of oils.
The Toronto exhibition, on through Aug. 18, is part of the ScotiaBank Contact Photography Festival
