Paysages construits nos. 1, 2, 3 (2009)

Each of the three large-scale relief murals is presented as a fictional aerial view constructed from multiple photographic fragments drawn from a previously created database of fictional aerial shots. Born of this fragmentation and assembly are make-believe abstract landscapes that highlight effects of texture, flatness or perspective, and the colours of the fragments. These photographic assemblages cause us to reflect on the border line between the abstract and the figurative, to the extent that the entire surface of the image is treated as a mosaic, the fragmentary nature of which is signalled by the use of pieces of blue gummed paper. The mural thus only makes sense when seen from a distance, prompting spectators to wonder about the constructed nature of the landscape.
