Shortly after Easter this year I got a very bad concussion that left me on full bed rest for three weeks and semi bed rest for another 3 weeks. For the first three weeks after the diagnosis I was not allowed to use a computer or a phone. I could not even watch TV. I was only allowed to sleep or take a walk if I felt good. The first couple of weeks were hard. The following weeks were better as I learned how to pace myself. I realized that my body was quite adept at letting me know when it had had enough. And so I listened to me and surprisingly, I learned a lot about myself. 
For the first time in my life I was able to rest without guilt and it was wonderful. I unplugged and reconnected with nature and it made me incredibly happy. This enabled me to see ME for the first time in what seemed like forever and I started to understand what was missing in my life, what I needed and what I no longer needed.

Artist Denise Buisman Pilger

Montreal based Graphic artist Denise Buisman Pilger never fails to impress me and her recent collaboration with Photographer Pazit Perez is no less impressive. Edgy and Erotic, the "Journey" collection combines Perez's portraits with Pilger's cityscapes into unique pieces of art. 

Journey - Je Me Souviens

Journey - Sin City

Journey - The Big Apple

The following work belongs to Pilger's on-going series of city-scapes entitled "Travelling the World", which pays homage to some of her favorite places. 

Pilger's view of each city is at once recognizable but quite unique. Merging many photographs into one the viewer is led into an urban landscape whereupon buildings, cars, people, road signs, taxis, vendors, streets, and other meld into one vision competing for our attention. Each City's essence is brilliantly captured and the longer you look at each piece the more things you will discover.

Pilger's pieces can be seen at the Viva Vida Art Gallery, 278 -2 Lakeshore Road, Pointe Claire.

Pilger and Pazit will be presenting their "Journey" project at the 2012 "Festival International Montréal en Arts" which is held on St. Catherine Street from June 27th to July 1st.
