April Hickox
Vantage Point: Portholes , 2009 edition 7/7

2009

$30,000

About

Beautiful set of 15 landscape photographs taken from the porthole of a ship sailing the St. Lawrence River from Îles de la Madeleine to the Port of Montreal.In these works the porthole acts as a viewing device mimicking a lens, isolating observation and the movement of the ship. The coloration and markings on the images are due to the thickness of the glass in the porthole, combined with the effects of salt water and weathering. The porthole replaces the framing mechanism of the camera, while the movement of the ship provides a constructed vantage point for viewing. This series of chromogenic prints has been created in a limited edition of 7. Only one complete set of the 15 images remain - and this is number 7/7. The others are held in public and private collections. Installation size and format can be variable - but each individual photo is 24hx20w inches. April Hickox has been a lens based artist, teacher and independent curator for over 35 years. Her practice includes photography, film, video and installation works. Her work is based in narratives, the passage from one experience to another in the life process encompassing history, memory and site. Hickox studied photography and graphic design at the Ontario College of Art where she is an associate professor of photography at the Ontario College of Art and Design University, Toronto. She has been awarded multiple grants from the Canada Council and the Ontario Arts Council and was founding Director of Gallery 44 for photography in Toronto. Her work is included in many public collections including the Art Gallery of Peterborough, Art Gallery of Hamilton, Kitchener Waterloo Art Gallery, Canadian Museum of Contemporary Photography, Canadian Government, Dept. of External Affairs Government of Ontario, Glenhurst Art Gallery, MacLaren Art Centre, Oakville Galleries, Ryerson Polytechnic Photography Collection, Winnipeg Art Gallery, Agnes Etherington Art Centre, Burnaby Art Gallery. Corporate collections include Bennett Jones, Burroughs Memorex, Fidelity Investments, Aimia, Central Guarantee Trust, Clarkson Gordon, CN Hotels, Price Waterhouse Inc., Royal Bank of Canada, Royal Trust Co. Ltd., British Airways, Maclean-Hunters, Toronto Board of Education, Toronto Dominion Bank, and Norcen Energy.
