Susy Oliveira’s sculpture & photography mash-ups

Dimensional photo sculptures are not unique to Toronto artist Susy Oliveira. But her work is so striking that she’s definitely put a singular stamp on the medium. Gwon Osang’s work has a more organic style, while Oliveira’s pieces feel more technological, as if the figures stepped out of a computer generated landscape before becoming fully realized. She uses a series of photos mounted on archival card and foamcore. Oliveira says, “The photograph is used here as a record of reality and is manipulated with two and three-dimensional collage. In the sculptural work there is an added opposition between the round aspects of sculpture and the flat aspects of photography, much like bringing a virtual model into a real space.”
