Thursday February 20th - Sunday February 23
Better Living Centre (195 Princes Blvd), Toronto
Lindsi Beth Holland uses photography to create visual poetry through abstractions of colour, light and texture. Her newest collection presents an ambiguous topography and reflective pattern charged with a flurry of vivid colours and geometric shapes that evoke a positive and high frequency energy. She encourages the viewer to foster a playful mindset while interacting with her images. Her work speaks to the creative process and eludes to the “act of being in flow”, a state of elevated internal perspective.

REFLECT ON: water and glass
Yorkville Village, Toronto, September 2019
Throughout Lindsi Hollend’s artistic career, her focus has been on capturing her unique perspective. In this collection, Lindsi encourages viewers to embrace the transformative power of the reflective surfaces of water and glass, as they interact with their environment, creating new perspectives of familiar imagery.
In the water images, Lindsi examines the reflective properties of water – a surface that is never still. Sunlight captured on undulating waves, city lights reflected on pitch black lakes, ripples distorting the wonders of nature, and long exposures of colourful objects blend together to create a new experience.
In the architectural images, Lindsi explores the reflective properties of glass – a medium we typically associate with transparency. Instead of being a portal to the interior of the buildings, the reflective surfaces become a tool to render unique perspectives of their surroundings. Sunsets, an overcast sky, neighbouring buildings, and their own structural materials create an entirely new scene.
