Thomas Hlavacek is a Czech-born, Toronto-based artist whose practice includes photography and video. He studied at the New England School of Photography in Boston, Algonquin College in Ottawa and the Toronto School of Art. His primary interest is the investigation of form and the nature of visual perception. His recent photographs explore architectural objects that define and delimit the urban landscape, but mostly receive so little attention as to remain virtually unseen. The work addresses the issues of technology and the human response to an increasingly complex and multifarious post-industrial environment.
