Alex McLeod’s imaginative digital landscapes has come alive at Surrey’s UrbanScreen. It’s being displayed on Canada’s largest non-commercial outdoor urban screen dedicated to presenting digital and interactive art.

Phantasmagoria will illuminate Surrey Art Gallery’s offsite venue (Chuck Bailey Recreation Centre) after dark until April 29th, 2018.

Alex McLeod is a new media visual artist from Toronto. McLeod’s images recall the wide-open vistas of romantic landscape painting, and strange otherworldly dystopias.

Guests will see dazzling shapes and patterns float, bounce, spin, and spill across the windows of the building in a display of optical splendour, constantly moving between two and three-dimensional space.

Moreover, these elements are composed in an ever-evolving series of animated tableaus that playfully experiment with physics, light, and form.

Curated by Rhys Edwards, this exhibition is a part of the 2018 Capture Photography Festival.
