Trevor Louden is a fine art photographer who was born and lives in Calgary, Alberta.
His work has been called such expressions as “intense”, “different”, and “primal”.
Trevor earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography from the Alberta College of Art in 2004.
He specialized in Landscape and Architecture, but after becoming educated in psychology and obtaining a degree in social work he began to experiment with what he called “Naturalistic Inkblots”. These images resembled artifacts such as “Rorshachs” and totem poles.
“My inspiration stems from these concepts found in inkblot imagery and finds expression in nature. This intrinsically basic medium is ancient, pre-dates human evolution, and speaks a primal language.”
Using subject matter that incorporates the environment makes Trevor’s work a natural fit for Canmore.
“The viewer is to use their perspectives and lenses to create their own meaning, producing an insight. Because the insight is self-generated, it is that much more powerful and effective for the viewer.”
This process can be likely be attributed to Trevor’s goals of eventually being trained as an art therapist. In the meantime, Trevor plans on continuing to grow as an artist and exhibiting to the public.
