Before earning his Honours degree in Fine Arts at York University, Au dabbled in graphic design and fell in love with art history and art in all its forms. Au embraces both the traditional art form of black and white photography and the modern technology of capturing images in bits and bytes. After working in the photography industry for over 20 years Louis Au is exhibiting his first body of work "Urban fragments...alien world of urban terrain" as part Downtown Art + Sound's monthly event at the Rivoli.
Au's work as a photographer records his fascination with urban decay. By documenting the corrosive nature of time through the lens and he pays tribute to the fragmentations of old relics often left to rot until demolition. Capturing the alien world of urban terrain is a dominating theme of Au's work. Please Join us on Tuesday, Feb. 17th upstairs at the Rivoli.
