constant Liss Platt MKG127

MKG127 is pleased to present constant, the first solo
exhibition at MKG127 by Hamilton, Ontario based artist, Liss Platt.

January 7 - February 4, 2012

For over a decade Liss Platt has been making abstract works out of everyday gestures and objects that resonate with her. The photographs in constant represents a continuation of her interest in bringing elements of the everyday, along with personal and autobiographical content, into an aestheticised and conceptual art practice. The centering of the subject and the repetition align the series with the New Topographic movement and offer more commonplace, rather than sublime, renditions of nature. The particular landscape represented in this series of images is from a place Platt has been returning to, and photographing for over eight years. She is interested in the process of sustained looking, particularly at something that is familiar, and what occurs through an accumulation of images. She is also intrigued by the tension between what changes in the scene and what stays the same.

Liss Platt lives and works in Hamilton, Ontario where she is associate professor in the multimedia program at McMaster University. Her work has been exhibited and screened internationally. She previously exhibited in the exhibition, Pattern Theory at MKG127 in 2007 and as a member of the Shake-n-Make collective for the exhibition, I Can't Stop This Feeling in 2009.
