PHOTO BELOW: 1. Revelstoke artist Bruce Thomas (pictured in photo 4) presents Next Passage Out until May 2 at the Revelstoke Visual Arts Centre. His mixed media works are based on photographs he has curated, then altered through computer algorithms he adapts on a computer. The process involves tweaking and creating snapshots of the process, which are presented as photographic prints. He also based an acrylic painting series on the results; the series is based on early Persian and 17th Century French vessels, their profiles surrounded by blocked primary colours. “I’m obsessed with the craftsmanship of shape and the deconstruction of shape.” Thomas explained, saying that the computers “are actually making a lot of the decisions.” He explained he as an artist is involved in the process “in a God’s breath way.” Thomas is exploring how artistic media convergence has created interchangeability. 2. A detail of a mixed media work by Gwen Lips entitled Gotcha shows – presumably – a gardener spraying poisons onto flowers. It’s part of the In My Garden Grows series in the main hall at the Revelstoke Visual Arts Centre. The show opened on April 11 and runs to May 2. 3. New, colourful planter boxes at the RVAC are part of a community garden planned in partnership with the North Columbia Environmental Society. In upcoming issues, the Times Review is working with the NCES on stories about garden initiatives.
