I chose Susana Reisman because of her interest in how we see, counter to assumptions of photographic information. There is a sense of extended duration in her works Camera Lucida and On the Scale of History that allows us to accrue detail towards a subjective experience of her photographs. These works are sequenced to a “panorama” for space or movement, rather than a topical narrative.

The subject matter in both of these series us a staging or sculptural construction of seminal texts on photography. To photographers, our past moves linearly present. Thought becomes material. And this emphasis on materiality brings poetry to “about photography.” Form and content marry.

The More Is More Collection, Gallery TPW And Circuit Gallery Partner To Offer Affordable Art

Toronto, ON – December 17, 2009 Circuit Gallery and Gallery TPW are pleased to announce the launch of The More Is More Collection, an innovative fundraising enterprise for the artist-run centre.

Toronto’s Gallery TPW is an artist-run center that has played a significant role for over thirty years in supporting both contemporary Canadian and International artists, working in still and moving images, and developing audiences through its gallery exhibitions, online programming, public events, and promotional activities. Circuit Gallery is an innovative web-based gallery whose mission is to make high-quality contemporary art more accessible by making it more affordable.

The two galleries have joined forces to offer a series of very affordable limited editions drawn from the work of past exhibiting artists, members of the Board, and friends of Gallery TPW.

Artwork currently available includes special editions by Nadia Belerique, the FASTWÜRMS, Micah Lexier, Kelly Lycan, and Annie MacDonell. New additions to this collection by Dean Baldwin, Cecilia Berkovic, Diane Borsato, and Lindsay Page will be added in the near future.

All of the photographs in this collection are exclusively available for purchase online through the Circuit Gallery website – – and are available as 16″ x 20″ prints at a very wallet-friendly $120.

“We are really excited to be partnering with Gallery TPW and supporting their programming mission,” says Susana Reisman, Circuit Gallery co-director. “We have an solid infrastructure that can both help in raising funds for Gallery TPW and in making available, indeed accessible, some great artwork.”

According to Gary Hall, Gallery TPW Executive Director, “Circuit Gallery has created a hassle-free system for expanding our affordable art program with year-round on-line sales in aid of our fundraising goals.”

An exhibition and reception to mark the launch of this new collaboration is planned for early 2010 at Gallery TPW.
