Vancouver Exhibitions. Photography By Joshua Jensen Nagle at Bau-Xi Gallery. March 7-21, 2015, main floor gallery. THE PICTORIAL UNCANNY.
Joshua Jensen-Nagle’s work explores the use of photography as a means to create rather than to document a reality. Triggering the sensation of a distant memory, his images blur the lines between lived experience and a dreamlike sensation.
Of the sentimentality apparent in Jensen-Nagle’s work, writer Gary Michael Dault notes, “untrammeled sensuality is not often linked with pauseless forays into experimentation. It is all the more remarkable, then, to find these two wayward and usually mutually exclusive energies coming together to enrich Joshua Jensen-Nagle’s large, opulent photographs.”
Timeless in their compositions, these images are created using a variety of techniques during shooting and post production that result in dream-like impressions.
