about the exhibit

We view things not only from different sides, but with different eyes; we have no wish to find them alike.

Altered Images: A Play of Perspective is a series of 38 panels created by 10 artists in the fall of 2013 for the SOGH-ER corridor. This installation is a result of a partnership between Seven Oaks General Hospital and Artbeat Studio: Studio Central. This is the 3rd exhibit to go up at SOGH, with a new exhibit rotating every six months. This project was facilitated by Studio Central artists Stew McCulloch & Laurie Green.

10 artists were each given four black-and-white photographic prints shot by photographers L.B. Foote, Laurie Green and Stew McCulloch of Winnipeg’s downtown area (Central Park & The Exchange). Each artist was given free-rein to enhance the photos with his/her own artistic touch. The results vary from simple to extraordinary, representing a wide range of media and artistic influences.

The theme of the exhibit calls attention to the different perspectives & points of view of the individual. Even though every artist was given the exact same images, each set of pictures has been uniquely altered to create distinct re-interpretations and contextualizations.
