Marquess Beck @ The Peanut Gallery (Calgary)
Marquess always comes to us early on. He is particular, practical, and always a pleasure to work with. We worked together on this project for a few months, discussing choices of curation, paper, printing, glass, and framing. For this show, he chose Hahnemuhle German Etching paper with texture that highlights the subject and creates life in negative space. He chose a contemporary frame to contrast the weathered subject matter, and a glass with low-reflectivity to allow for zero distraction. The show created was peaceful and powerful.
