David Burdeny’s contemplative seascapes conquer the three dimensional realm in his Slat Art editions. This remarkable, two-layered technique presents the artist with a range of new opportunities to portray his subject. A second layer is split into strips and mounted above the initial photo to create a stunning visual effect that impresses and entices. In the tension between calmness and movement, the true power of the vast ocean is revealed, giving the viewer a completely new experience. We’ve never seen the sea like this before!
Born in Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada, David Burdeny (1968) has degrees in both Interior design and a Masters in Architecture. At the age of 12, David started to photograph the prairie landscape and make his own black and white prints in a makeshift darkroom that also served as his bedroom closet. Primarily self taught, his architecture and design background greatly influences his penchant for simple exacting photographs of sky, horizon and the marks humankind leaves behind. David purposefully photographs in poor light and near darkness. He uses unusually long exposures to see that which our eyes can not. Moving beyond the literal, his images have been described as ominous, haunting, beautiful and meditative.
"Drift" is a series of moving and still images. Collected during travels through Canada, France, Japan, England, Belgium and the USA, these photographs catalogue the shifting light and color of the world's oceans and shorelines. Using a variety of analogue and digital mediums that closely parallel racetrack photo finish technology, the images invert conventional photographic motion/time relationships. Motion is rendered still and still is rendered in motion, graphically revealing the underlying rhythms and patterns of the physical world while tracing our navigation through it.Bio
