the frog croaked twelve
exhibition of works at Akasha Gallery in Toronto, june 2- june 30, 2012
The Frog Croaked Twelve is an inventive, witty, and visionary approach to the photographic medium. Julie Liger-Belair contemporizes found antique photographs by merging them with a variety of mixed media. In doing so, she breathes new life into these forgotten images by providing them with a new purpose in a different context. Her work is a series of intimate worlds that she allows us to peer into in both a private and voyeuristic manner.
Part of Liger-Belair’s unique talent lies in her ability to manipulate, transform, and alter imagery in a way that engages the viewer with both the familiar and the unfamiliar. A sensibility for the whimsical, attention to the finest details, and finesse for the extraordinary make this body of work otherworldly and completely entertaining. The Frog Croaked Twelve will appear at Akasha art projects from June 2 - July 7, 2012. Opening reception will be on June 2, 5-8pm. (written by Akasha gallery)
