January 6 – 31, 2021

“With this specific project, I aim to explore timeless natural experiences such as creation, destruction, and re-creation. All my source material is dead and decaying that I acquire from a variety of different sources… I bring the specimens back to life through an intricate dance of detail, colour, and form; immortalizing the departed in majestic fashion. I use a flatbed scanner and scan physical three-dimensional biological objects at high resolutions. The objects are then arranged [on a digital canvas] and then printed on a large scale, borderless and frameless, acrylic medium. There is an intentional juxtaposition created between that of technology and nature. The images I create are a flow of intricacy, detail, balance, and colour. Viewed from a distance the works are kaleidoscopic, anthemic, and abundant in symmetry. Viewed up close they reveal their own biology and inner workings, sometimes revealing the grotesque building blocks the works are built from.”

David Zsako was born in Budapest Hungary in 1983 and immigrated to Canada with his family in 1989. He grew up in Hamilton Ontario, and received a BFA degree, majoring in photography, from NSCAD University in 2006.
