Roy Arden

born 1957 in Vancouver/Canada, where he lives and works.

Vancouver artist Roy Arden is most known for his Realist photography of what he has termed the landscape of the economy wherein history and modernity are read through the surface of the everyday. Arden's photographs eschew the exotic and spectacular in favor of the seemingly insignificant. He has written; "I am interested in how allegory emerges from the real." This exhibition is a selection of works from 1992 to 2005, and features images of overlooked subjects such as detritus on the street, abandoned automobiles and consumer goods in a "Wal-Mart" store. Also included are new pictures of flowers that are as austere as any of Arden's pictures.
