“UNDER THE SAME CLOUD”
Izabella “Izzy” Bandojo Grant and Francisco Léon
January 16 – March 4, 2018
Vernissage: Tuesday January 16, 2018, 6 – 8 p.m.
The Ottawa School of Art presents new works by Diploma Students Izabella “Izzy” Bandojo Grant and Francisco León.
Although Izzy and Francisco have come from different backgrounds, artistically they share a common passion for the medium of photography and have teamed up to present a body of black and white digital imagery inspired by the narrative of the current play presented at the G.C.T.C.: “What A Young Wife Ought to Know”.
With a comprehensive vocabulary in both Dance and Music informing Izzy’s photographic creativity, she skillfully captures playfully vibrant and fluid movements in her black and white photographs. Francisco’s images are thoughtful yet ruminative. They are quiet and contemplative yet engaging to the viewer, each offering their own narratives.
Both Izzy and Francisco are currently completing the three year Fine Arts Diploma program at OSA.
“We have used this opportunity to show how we both perceive our lives while behind the lens. Even though our lifestyles and ideas are different, we’ve managed to bring our works together in unison.”
– Izzy Grant, Artist / Francisco Leon, Artist
