Reception: Thursday, February 12, 5 - 8 pm, Upper Centre Court

Starting January 12th, the Window Galleries in Arts Commons will feature an artist who presents an unexpected perspective on beautiful tropical landscapes.  Jean-René Leblanc explores the conceptual use of digital infrared photography as a means to present new ways of looking at the world around us with Unseen Beauty of Paradise.
 
“My work explores the relationship between digital technology and culture as a means of exploring the concept of making the invisible, visible,” says artist Jean-René Leblanc.  “The concept behind the use of Digital Infrared Photography in photographing the landscape in Hawaii is based on the notion of capturing what the eye cannot see, thus presenting the Unseen Beauty of Paradise.”
 
Associate professor of digital arts at the University of Calgary in Canada, Jean-René Leblanc completed a PhD in study and practice of art from the Université du Québec à Montréal. His artworks have been presented in exhibitions in Canada, the United States, Europe, Asia and Australia.
