The Romantic Landscape by Frank Grisdale
June 26 – August 24, 2009
Embassy of Canada Prince Takamado Gallery

May 26, 2009

Exhibition Announcement

The Embassy of Canada is pleased to present The Romantic Landscape by Frank Grisdale to celebrate the 80th anniversary of Canada-Japan diplomatic relations.

Grisdale is an Alberta-based landscape photographer. His first solo exhibition in Japan features 28 abstract landscape photographs from Alberta. His work references painters such as William Turner and Mark Rothko, characterised as it is by a distinctively soft and meditative focus.

Grisdale takes an impressionistic approach to capturing the beauty of Western Canada, something rarely seen in the world of colour photography. It is impossible not to come away thinking of the artist as a painter.

Grisdale's photos have been shown in Canada, Italy, South Korea and the USA. They are also found in many public collections including those of the Government of Alberta, the Royal Alberta Museum, and the Alberta Foundation for the Arts.

Grisdale was recently given the title of Colour Master by the International Color Awards in London, and has been recognized for his work by the Prix de la Photographie in Paris.

This exhibition is held in cooperation with the Government of Alberta Japan Office, the City of Edmonton, and the Alberta Foundation for the Arts.
