Willian Eakin Installation At Actual Gallery

"The Actual Gallery is one of those hidden gems of the city that you have most likely passed in the Exchange without thinking twice about it.

Winnipeg is full of places you have to hunt for, and that’s fine with me. I was happy to have William Eakin’s photography exhibit to myself because it meant I could absorb both the grand and subtle gestures Eakin presents in his photos.

Eakin attended the Vancouver School of Art and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, and has taught at several schools, including the University of Manitoba. His experience with fine arts is evident in his boldly executed and focused pieces that have the ability to make you look for an extra minute, coincidentally.

The entire collection is a series of clocks – some textured and some showing images. Space and galactic textures underlie most of the pieces, giving a sense of perspective beginning forcefully with the sun and moon clocks at the front." - Alana Trachenko for The Manitoba
