Tim Laurin

Tim Laurin: Telecommunications, 2011, Monotype, 5 x 5 inches

In an attempt to document fleeting, unseen and unappreciated beauty passing by his car window, Tim Laurin has amassed a large number of landscape images captured on his iPhone during his daily commutes. Similar to Sophie Privé’s use of documentary photos of family and friends, Laurin’s rural fragments are distilled and explored on the printing press through the use of photo transfers, inks and intaglio processes. Laurin’s striking and delicately layered monotypes contrast with the overabundance of seemingly mundane images afforded by new technology.
