Adrian Fish and David Holt show opening April 25th

April 25 – May 17, 2015 Opening Reception: April 25, 2015, 2-5 p.m. 

Adrian Fish The Aquaphilia Project IV: Critical Infrastructure 

In the fourth iteration of The Aquaphilia Project entitled Critical Infrastructure, photographer Adrian Fish investigates contemporary municipal wastewater treatment facilities. Our curiosity as to the fate of what happens after we flush a toilet or turn on a tap is limited. Seldom do we think about how different the nature of contemporary urban life would be without water and wastewater treatment. The incredible investment required in increasingly advanced technologies to safely neutralize organic matter in the 21st century requires facilities rarely seen. Fish's interest is in probing the aesthetics of the critical infrastructure upon which we are entirely dependent. 

David Holt Arcadia 

Holt’s small-scale paintings playfully depict idyllic landscapes, bathers, and views of ancient architecture. His inspirations include 17th century Italianate landscapes, ruins, and mythological paintings, as well as late Edo era landscapes by Japanese literati painters. 

A recipient of a painting grant from the Ludwig Vogelstein Foundation and an artist’s residency at the Ragdale Foundation, Holt has exhibited extensively and taught for many years in the US, where he chaired the art department at Marymount College (later of Fordham University) in Tarrytown, New York. Since 2005 he has lived and worked in Toronto, teaching art at Upper Canada College.
