STATION 16 GALLERY PRESENTS POINT BLANK, A SERIES OF HANDGUN "PORTRAITS" BY TORONTO-BASED PHOTOGRAPHERS PETER ANDREW LUSZTYK & DEREK BLAIS. THESE PHOTOGRAPHS ARE PRESENTED IN LARGE SCALE, LEAVING THE VIEWER WITH A FEELING OF UNEASE AND FASCINATION. 

Les photographies ne sont pas à considérer en tant que déclaration politique, bien qu'elles permettent une tribune de conversation. Elles étudient plutôt les éléments techniques et scientifiques des pistolets, mettant en lumière la beauté sous-jacente à leur design.

« Nous avons décidé de les photographier comme on photographirait une personne puissante. Alors que nous commençions la séance, nous pouvions voir les défauts de leur design. Ces imperfections nous ont intéressé, nous amenant à appréhender ces images comme des portraits. Nous voulons que les gens regardent attentivement et qu'ils examinent les défauts et les imperfections de quelque chose de si puissant, si dangereux. 

The photographs are not intended as a political statement, despite providing a forum for conversation. Rather, they study the technical and scientific elements of guns, highlighting the underlying beauty in their design.

"We decided to photograph them as you might photograph a powerful person. As we started shooting them, we could see flaws in their design. These imperfections interested us, connecting us back to these images as ‘portraits.’ We want people to look closely and examine the flaws and imperfections of something so powerful, so dangerous.”

 

Street Art Heist.

Police file a report for 50,000$ of stolen art. 

What seemed like a regular Monday morning at Station16 gallery... turned out to be the scene of a crime. Sometime between November 2nd and November 4th, Station16 gallery was broken into. The thieves made off with over 50,000$ worth of original art and prints. The stolen pieces do not appear to be random, as some were selected and removed from the wall. Along with the Montreal Police, we ask you to help us with any information regarding these stolen works of art. Stop the re-sale of stolen art.

 

Here is a selection of some of the works that were stolen;
