Description Captured along the Don River, Toronto. In the downtown core of Toronto, a river runs. Not a pretty river, at that point, but one ripe with decay and industrial contamination. This is the remnants of someone's graffiti, overrun with rust leaking down from the iron support struts above.
Thomas Boldt, Toronto Member Since January 2012 Artist Statement I am dedicated to the bizarre and seemingly inexplicable.
I graduated from the York University/Sheridan College Joint Programme in Graphic Design in 2008, although I've been passionate about art, design, and photography since an early age, second only to my passion for language.
I have always struggled with the sanitized version of history that we are presented with, and this disconnect eventually brought me to realize that the gloss and glitz of modern life is something of a sham. We are becoming obsessed with a non-existent version of reality, and I try to reflect this struggle by finding pattern and beauty in the chaos of destructive processes. Rust, decay, and erosion are my favorite subject topics, although instant situational snapshots are also appealing to me.
