David Brandy

David Brandy has always been fascinated with the “Uncanny” – a concept based on the subject of aesthetics, where aesthetics is understood to mean not merely the theory of beauty but the theory of the qualities of feeling – an instance where something can be seen as both beautiful yet alien at the same time.

Finding inspiration in the words of artist Robert Heinecken ("Many pictures turn out to be limp translations of the known world instead of vital objects which create an intrinsic world of their own."), David endeavours to create images that alter or detach the subject from its natural function or place, creating a vital object that exposes a beauty that can be familiar yet strange.

His photography is exhibited regularly in galleries and art shows, and is in private collections in Ontario. David is a member of Gallery 44 Centre For Contemporary Photography, Scarborough Arts, The Artists Network, and RAW: Natural Born Artists.
