Biography: A fourth-generation Chinese-Canadian, Garrett Andrew Chong graduated with honours from ECUAD. The emotional intelligence of visual imaging developed into forms of expression in his early practice, particularly through photography. His recent explorations have evolved through spiritual influences, underscoring an attunement to natural forces.Artist Statement: "Eroded Origins: Liminal Illusions Amidst Climatic Transformations" is an immersive art project with three core elements: The Flow, The Cut, and The Blessing, aiming to heighten environmental awareness and dialogue. Through the interplay of light auras and natural shadows, it serves as a contemplative guide, urging reflection on climate change's impact on our ecosystems.Using lens-based HDR imagery, "Eroded Origins" explores liminal illusions as symbolic gateways in vibrant hues. Metaphorically illuminating environmental portals, it signals the looming climate crisis while representing diverse interpretations of auras of light. The exhibition ignites discourse and fosters a deep emotional connection to nature, prompting contemplation on ecological challenges.Brainstorm: "Eroded Origins", presents a question If the forest could communicate: What am I Saying?... Speak for Me !
