Roy Arden was born in Vancouver in 1957 where he lives and works today.
He studied at the Vancouver School of Art and the University of British Columbia and has been active as an exhibiting visual artist since 1978. His « archival » works of the 1980’s examined the fundamental nature of the photographic and questioned its role in the construction of history. His large colour landscape photographs of the 1990’s registered the « landscape of the economy » in Realist tableaux. Arden’s work is regularly seen in commercial and institutional exhibitions in Canada and internationally. Arden has also taught, curated and published critical texts. [Source : VOX, 2002]
