PAINT-O-graphica

Lorne Fromer


PAINT-O-graphica is a series of images, created from shards and fragments of the urban landscape. Combining photos of store windows, street signage, outdoor advertising and graffiti, photographer Lorne Fromer has produced a handsome body of large scale photo-canvases that employ juxtaposition, reflection, layering and collage -- all in the service of painterly/photographic abstraction. Layered in fact, irony, and contradiction, Fromer has produced a valuable addition to the semiotics of the urban landscape.
