May 07 - June 01
BC 5x3 is a collection of photographs taken by photographer Liana Sipelis while she travelled through British Columbia: Tofino, Merritt, Bella Coola, Vancouver, and Mount Seymour in North Vancouver.
Artist Talk: Saturday May 11, 2pm. Reception: Saturday May 11, 3–5pm.

There are five groups of three images, and each triplet is distinct due to place, time of day, and the colour palate of the area. These groupings explore emotive environments, intense colour fields, textures, and multiple possible readings afforded by abstraction.

Of the image above, the artist says: "The 'Lucky' image was discovered on a walk on the edge of Chinatown in downtown Vancouver. The small scale and the vibrant red hue of the building immediately drew my eye to the scene. I chose to photograph the building at dusk for a deep blue background."

Liana Sipelis is a photographer and architect based in Deep Cove, BC. She uses a medium-format Hasselblad camera and is primarily self-taught. Her design background influences her interest in photographic abstraction and she prefers strong graphic images. Her work has been exhibited in the Monochrome (2007), Nocturne (2007) and Vancouver (2008) group shows at the Exposure Gallery, as well as in the Photography 2012 group exhibition at Artworks gallery in Vancouver, BC. For her first solo show, she presented her ice images in Atmospheres at the Artemis Gallery in North Vancouver. Sipelis is a practicing architect with a Masters in Architecture from Columbia University.
