Working in photography, intermedia and installation, Arnold Koroshegyi is an award-winning artist who has exhibited across Canada, the United States and in Europe.  The aesthetic of his work is wide-ranging, and is expressed through different approaches to extended photography and intermedia. 

Arnold Koroshegyi’s artistic practice envelops a multidimensional consideration of the traces left by technology on the natural world and the marks of social consciousness on landscape. Central to his methodology are a syncretic approach to artistic process and an experimentation with materials that lead to a hybrid image-making process—one that brings together information aesthetics, locative media and photography.

His descriptive photographic series Breakspots, Unfinished Projects and Shortcuts all investigate the impermanence of place and seek to document the marginal in our shifting social, cultural and physical landscapes.

Recent exhibitions include a solo show entitled Electroscapes, (2016) at Platform Arts in Northern Ireland, and several group exhibitions: Landscape, Grand and Personal, at the South East Center for Photography in Greenville, South Carolina.
