aAron Munson, recipient of the 2019 Eldon and Anne Foote award, is a Canadian filmmaker and cinematographer and multimedia artist. His work has taken him from his personal studio to war zones, high-Artic weather stations, reindeer nomad camps in Siberia, and the Arabian Desert. aAron’s projects tackle extreme human experiences, both far from and close to home, utilizing film, video, photography and sound to create visual explorations relating to mental illness, memory, and the conscious mind.
The Front Gallery is proud to present a solo exhibition of aAron Munson’s photographs.
Being conscious only of filtered forms in the noise, the observations captured through these photographs are a reminder of the noise that is all form.
In life, as in these images, perception changes through proximity to a situation, and normalized reality is challenged when confronted with an unfamiliar perspective. Are the emotional states we experience simply interactions within our brains making sense of a world that is complex beyond our ability to perceive it? To imagine a future that connects us to each other and to the universe, might we look beyond the familiar forms that we project onto each other that divide and isolate us?
This exhibition demonstrates how a shift in perspective can create a vantage point beyond the familiar. Created through the actions of carbon ink, the imagery is a reminder of the incredible nature of things that we are woven into and have evolved from.
