His oeuvre has always evoked  Read more...

   schema:description "Pethick's practice has always been difficult to categorize; though his work focused on questions of perception, which have been a central focus in the visual arts over the past four decades, his amalgamations of photography, optical devices, sculpture and drawing - as well as the structures he assembled to create new conceptions of material space - look like no other artist's work. His oeuvre has always evoked something of the amateur scientist and inventor. In the late 1960s and early 70s he became widely known for his pioneering work with holography in London and San Francisco. While he stopped working with holograms when he moved to Hornby Island, British Columbia in the mid-1970s, the nature of visual perception, the history of optics and integral (or fly's eye) photography using multiple lenses remained central to his work. Although Pethick drew upon a sophisticated in-depth understanding of science and art history, his work was constructed from modest materials and found objects, including cheap plastic Fresnel lenses, discarded sinks, hay bales, light bulbs and bicycle tires that could be found in a local hardware store or garbage dump. While Pethick's work has been included in exhibitions across Canada, Europe, the United States and Japan, this publication will accompany the first retrospective exhibition of his work."@en ;
