Only 3 more days to catch “Topographic Sound”

13 Mar


“Topographic Sound” by Gary James Joynes will only be open for 3 more nights.

Do not miss this.

Here are the times:

Thurs 6-9pm
Fri 6-9pm
Sat 11-6pm

DC3 Art Gallery

10567 – 111 Street

Gary James Joynes takes over the dc3 Art Projects space for a solo show of work in multiple media, all created using sound as his primary creative tool.

The Topographic Sound series – from where the exhibition title is taken – explores sound as a powerful force akin to the unstoppable impact of time and nature in the formations of geology. Six very large photo-based works own the gallery main space and can be seen as graphic scores of the musician manipulating sand and sound, or as evidence of the effects of nature and vibration on a microscopic scale as it is related to the effects of much larger vibrations – earth movements and solar rotation.

In conjunction with this work we are proud to host Tritone (2013) a 100 day long decaying auditory chord and it’s wall-based sculptural echo, a continuation of his Alberta Bienniale performance to its conclusion.

Clinker/Gary James Joynes’ 12 Tones makes lasting impression

23 Jan

Gary James Joynes - 12 Tones

Last year’s 12 Tones aka Frequency Paintings exhibit at Latitude 53 was given a nice write-up in Vue Weekly’s 2011 visual arts year-in-review:

“Latitude kicked off a strong year of programming with this powerful exhibit by Edmonton artist Joynes. This show provided more than a viewing experience—it was a powerful, overwhelming immersion in raw, tonal sound—sound seen, heard and felt through your whole body. This intensity was so well balanced by photos of sand mandalas, suggesting the meditative aspect of the art experience, each created through the vibration of one of those intense tones.”
