Stephen Bulger Gallery is proud to host our annual exhibition of work judged Best of Show for a Third Year student at Ryerson University’s end of year exhibition.

 

In this selection of images from the series "Untitled N. 01" we explore the existential inquires of Tommy Calderón, whose photographs explore the psychological realm, impressions, and manifestations of the self as projected on the real. Exploring the idea of the human condition we are presented with an inner monologue that questions the importance of self. How we perceive the world around us is unique to the individual, and yet something of that experience can be transposed and communicated through photography. This ongoing series acts as a meditation on the link between our spiritual needs and our relation to the metaphysical as expressed through a series of interventions within the physical world. 

 

About the Artist: Tommy Calderón is a Toronto-based artist and photographer. Interested in the idea of realities, perception, and the ego, he explores the world in reference to historical non-fiction and the art-historical. A disbeliever in the common narrative, his work attempts to shift the routine of our everyday existence to the cathartic acts of self-reflection and independence.
