    Artists have been using tools since the first application of paint blown on a cave wall to outline a handprint. New technologies and aids, from the availably of paint in tubes or acrylic mediums have all influenced the works created. Photography and now digital tools are commonly used by artists in the process of creating drawings, paintings prints and sculpture. In this show these tools move from a supporting role to center stage.

    Each artist brings their unique perspective to the exhibition: McCarthy’s digital works incorporate her own photography into digital art using Photoshop. Delany an award-winning photographer and artist, and digital painter, utilizes photographs, digital painting tools primarily found on iPads and a painter’s sensibility. Recently retired astronomer Crabtree, being no stranger to technology, presents his skills using Adobe and Topaz tools. In this exhibit he’ll be showing photographs as well as images where patterns are created with folding and repetition.

    Destination Greater Victoria is honoured to be based on the traditional territory of the Lekwungen-speaking peoples of the Songhees Nation and the Esquimalt Nation, whose historical relationships with the land continue to this day.
