A labyrinth of trees, empty spaces, fractured architectural forms… we try to find our bearings in a vast terrain.

From above, the land provides a larger surface to inscribe our presence. Google earth and drone technology have turned the earth into a giant can- vas. Leaving traces of our presence we sketch strange geometries onto the land.

The three artists in Strange Geometries, Sylvie Bouchard, Laura Millard and Ross Racine, invoke these ideas through painting, photography and video. Compelling an investigation of the landscape from different vantage points the works in this exhibition conjure the myriad ways we attempt to tame our environment and reshape the land to reflect our reasoning.
