June 26 – August 7, 2015

Reception: Friday, June 26, 5:00-8:00pm

New works by local artist Bruce Bayard include digitally altered wide format landscape photographs, and stills of video clips which are layered and composed using a random algorithm process to choose image, layer order, and transparency. Samples of the videos used for this process will also be on view during the exhibit.


Image from Bruce Bayard's Digital Deconstruction exhibit at Rogue Gallery July 2015Bruce Bayard is an established Northwest artist who has shown throughout the west coast. Working as a digital artist, he uses multiple layers of photography, creating images that are mysterious and profoundly beautiful. The complex layering technique invites the viewer to continue to look at the work and discover new shapes, colors, and textures. Bruce describes his process, “My current pursuits in image-making involve reduction and augmentation. To accomplish the former, I spend more time looking at things that attract me visually, then when photographing, compose in the camera, seeing how much I can leave out. For the latter, I push multiple finished images together in diptych or triptych form, looking for ways each image compliments or reinforces the other.”


A reception will be held on Friday, June 26, 5:00 – 8:00 pm. Wine, Rogue Creamery cheese, and Harry and David snacks will be served.
