Brenda Webster Tweel is a camera-less photography artist who explores cyanotype's numerous technical, conceptual and visual possibilities. Her focus on process is rooted in her architectural thesis, for which she received the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada Medal.
Webster Tweel's painted works often deal in the play of opposites: shadow and light, movement and stillness, presence and absence, solid and void. By liberating objects from their scale and context, she encourages the viewer to contemplate the essence of form. She creates a feeling of surreal detachment, a sense of disengagement from time and the physical world.
