The Pine On The Corner, 1990 , transparency in lightbox
Born in Vancouver, Jeff Wall didn’t have a large show in the city since 1990. But now the Vancouver Art Gallery will be showing it’s collection of the artist’s iluminated transparencies until January 25. With works influenced by cinema and paintings, using digital technology and, many times, amateur performers, Wall started a aesthetic followed by many artists. His work helped stablishing the role of photography in the contemporary art.
