Arcuri’s ongoing Remix series is a continuation of the A Shot in the Dark series, re-worked as the title suggests. The iridescent colours, which mimic chemical stains, are created by layering two negatives of the same subject. Each negative is slightly different as the flowers move or change after being ignited by flame. Here you are able to see the difference or change between the ritualistic-like floral burns that the artist puts her dying subjects through. The images become almost otherworldly, looking infected, which speaks to Arcuri’s interest in undesirable fauna and the use of light.
Amanda Arcuri is a Toronto-based photographic artist. She started her passion for photography at Toronto Metropolitan University and continued on to complete her MFA at Emily Carr University of Art and Design in Vancouver, British Columbia. Arcuri is drawn to seemingly un-picturesque foliage and spaces that might be considered mundane or overlooked as her photographic subject matter. Her work has been shown at the Gladstone hotel, United Contemporary and On the Slate at Vaughan City Hall, along with public art commissions by the City of Vancouver, City of Vaughan and BigArtTO. She also enjoys teaching children’s and youth art classes at the Art Gallery of Ontario.
