2001 paysages fragiles

View Body of Work

Loosely translated, paysages fragiles alludes to the idea of the fragile landscape.  The work was conceptualized as the meeting point of the photograph, environmental issues raised by the image, and the subjectivity of painting. The architectural spaces and landscapes represented in this body of work are often problematic.  A disquieting emotional response is evoked by the dichotomy between the memory and projected imagination of place, and the actuality of reality of place.  Through these pictorial narratives, paysages fragiles attempts to re-trace, re-write, re-know, and ultimately re-claim the mnemonic traces of memory that define our understanding of identity and place.
