The ordinary, the forgotten and the unnoticed are transformed into eye-catching images at the hands of artist Jack Jackowetz. Through the process of post impressionist photography, Jackowetz brings everyday places, objects and images to life with a vibrant, whimsical use of colour. Often those images are of buildings, sometimes industrial, worn by age, abandoned or soon to be demolished.
Born and raised in Brantford, Jackowetz often wondered why there were so many images of places like London, Paris, and New York, but not of home or other smaller communities. His shift to the art world involved a journey of exploration that would ultimately result in the portrayal of many of those smaller communities in a new light and new colours.
His work continues to capture moments in time, but rather than just distinct images of communities, it showcases objects and things, and shapes and patterns. The collection features running shoes, a bottle of mineral water, a light switch, blueberries and other ordinary, turned extraordinary things.
He will be exhibiting his photography at the AP NOW! Guelph in the Wellington Brewery Warehouse September 22nd and 23rd. Be sure to visit and experience his emotive photographs firsthand!
