Description

Employing aesthetics of stock photography through odd and abstracted still lifes of everyday household objects, this exhibition features a new series of light boxes and moving image works by Jimmy Limit. Repurposing these objects into strange and elaborate sculptures, the work examines photography as both a supplier of commodities and a commodity in itself.

Jimmy Limit is a photo-based artist living in St. Catharines, Ontario. His recent exhibitions combine his long-standing interest in self-publishing and photography with a new fascination in ceramics and sculpture. Limit has exhibited throughout Canada and the United States, including exhibitions and at Rodman Hall/Brock University, St. Catharines; Clint Roenisch Gallery, Toronto; Mercer Union, Toronto; Butcher Gallery, Toronto; Emporium, Montreal; Melanie Flood Projects, New York; Printed Matter, New York and POV Evolving Gallery, Los Angeles. His work has been featured in publications including Bad Day, The New York Times, and Frieze. Limit received a BFA from the Ontario College of Art and Design in 2012, and is currently represented by Clint Roenisch Gallery.
