Solo Show: New Work Premiering at Espresso Post
Out of Service II. 36″x24″. Printed on Kodak metallic paper, and mounted behind quarter-inch-thick Plexiglass.
“Rust. Weather-beaten brush and lumber. Dilapidated structures. Signage that alludes to what once was.”
Will Skol’s Fall 2013 work captures not only a season in transition, but often the visually evident history of the locations he explores. The pieces range from painterly, semi-abstract investigations into the effects of weather and time, to detailed views of fading and disused architecture.
“Within decay there can be great beauty, and deposits of wisdom. And humour,” states Skol. “But as valuable as such information may be, it is ephemeral, and should be documented.”
The photographs were almost exclusively taken in the southern Georgian Bay area. They have been printed on a metallic photo paper, and mounted behind quarter-inch-thick Plexiglass — a striking presentation, to be sure. Pieces are available in sizes ranging from 18″x12″ to 36″x24″ (and larger, upon request). Each of these Plexiglas-mounted sizes is a limited edition of 25.
