Mathew Merrett
Industry

April 28–May 27, 2007
Pentimento Fine Art Gallery
1164 Queen St. East

Mathew Merrett has spent several years exploring,
photographing and exposing the decaying industrial
structures
around the great lakes. Frozen in time, subject to
the elements
and neglect, he captures what was once
abundant,
before the
redevelopment cycle erases them, forever.
"Industry" is about
capturing the past that helped build the present
while raising
questions about the future.
