Newzones is pleased to present "Apertures", Calgary artist and academic Megan Dyck's first solo exhibition with the gallery. We are excited to welcome Dyck into the gallery on February 10th from 1-3pm for the exhibition opening, including a guided tour of the exhibition by the artist at 2pm.

Dyck’s figurative imagery investigates the ubiquity of photography and aesthetic qualities of glitch that occur in digital and analog communication as metaphors for psychological isolation, loneliness, and desire. Transcribing benign and dramatic inadvertent visual flaws observed in contemporary and historical lens-based images of people, her paintings and drawings collectively address instances of fragmentation, warping, distortion, and double-exposure as emblems for the incongruousness of the human psyche. Co-opting pixelated selfies, frozen excerpts of online meetings, found film negatives, and lagging video-clips encountered on social media as primary visual referents, Dyck’s work attempts to convey the unease of being a consumer of images in the digital age, moving perpetually between a sense of connection and alienation.
